Inquisition : the reign of fear by Toby Green( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 962 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: A journey across centuries of religious conflict Toby Green's incredible new book brings a vast panorama to life by focusing on the untold stories of individuals from all walks of life and every section of society who were affected by the Inquisition. From witches in Mexico, bigamists in Brazil, Freemasons, Hindus, Jews, Moslems and Protestants, the Inquisition reached every aspect of society. This history, though filled with stories of terror and the unspeakable ways in which human beings can treat one another, is ultimately one of hope, underscoring the resilience of the human spirit. Stretching from the unification of Spain under Ferdinand and Isabella in the fifteenth century to the Napoleanic wars, The Inquisition details this incredible history in all its richness and complexity
The rise of the trans-Atlantic slave trade in western Africa, 1300-1589 by Toby Green( Book )
20 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
"The region between the river Senegal and Sierra Leone saw the first trans-Atlantic slave trade in the sixteenth century. Drawing on many new sources, Toby Green challenges current quantitative approaches to the history of the slave trade. New data on slave origins can show how and why Western African societies responded to Atlantic pressures. Green argues that answering these questions requires a cultural framework and uses the idea of creolization - the formation of mixed cultural communities in the era of plantation societies - to argue that preceding social patterns in both Africa and Europe were crucial. Major impacts of the sixteenth-century slave trade included political fragmentation, changes in identity, and the reorganization of ritual and social patterns. The book shows which peoples were enslaved, why they were vulnerable, and the consequences in Africa and beyond"--

Travels in West Africa: Congo français, Corisco and Cameroons by Mary Henrietta Kingsley( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
In 1893, for a thirty-year-old British spinster to take a cargo vessel to West Africa was an extraordinary step. The unorthodoxy of Mary Kingsley's response to her stifling domestic life has cast her in the mould of an isolated heroine, removed from the cultural milieu of late nineteenth-century Cambridge in which she was raised. But the long voyage from the confines of her mother's sickroom to the group rapids was a psychological as well as physical journey. Its roots lay in the dreams and aspirations shared by many middle-class Victorian women who responded in less dramatic and memorable ways. Mary Kingsley's contribution to the 19th-century image of Africa, her work as advisor and campaigner on colonial affairs, and the connections she made between theories of sexual and racial determinism, all reveal a woman firmly rooted in her time, not an individual divorced from it. Her very ordinary ambitions and desires are sometimes swamped amid the foreignness of the landscape in which they were realized

Meeting the invisible man : secrets and magic in West Africa by Toby Green( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"In 1995, Toby Green became friends with El Hadji, a Senegalese photographer who swore that, in the West African hinterland, there were mystics who possessed the secrets of how to become invisible and invulnerable. Four years later, he returns to meet up with his old friend, and test the strengths of these surreal claims for himself. Travelling together through Casamance, Guinea-Conakry and Guinea-Bissau, their epic journey soon throws up a world where nothing is more fragile than the human body, and nothing more powerful than the magic that subverts it. Immersing himself in a culture where Islam and animism are hybridised and everything has a mystical explanation, Green ventures with El Hadji to remote settlements in the bush where the keepers of ancient knowledge - the marabouts - still retain their authority. Malaria sets in, the mystery deepens, and their enquiries lead to a series of discoveries beyond the realms of fantasy"--Publisher's description
