9780415589475: The Trans-Saharan Slave Trade (History and Society in the Islamic World)

This compelling text sheds light on the important but under studied trans-Saharan slave trade. The author uncovers and surveys this, the least-noticed of the slave trades out of Africa, which from the seventh to the twentieth centuries quielty delievered almost as many black Africans into foreign servitude as did the far busier, but much briefer Atlantic and East African trades.

Illuminating for the first time a significant, but ignored subject, the book supports and widens current scholarly examination of Africans' essential role in the enslavement of fellow-Africans and their delivery to internal, Atlantic or trans-Saharan markets.

Review:

'Through an intelligent and judicious use of a wide variety of relevant sources, Wright has produced a fine work of scholarly synthesis that constitutes a solid contribution to the literature on the rise and demise of the slave trade in a part of Africa that has long been neglected by specialists in the field. Thus he has successfully―and literally―breached the world of the Sahara as an ecological and academic terra incognita'Hussein Ahmed, Addis Ababa University, Journal of Islamic Studies 2009
