About this Item: University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, 2005. Softcover. Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 2005. xxx, 246pp. B&W maps and images throughout. "Drawing on her field work in the palace between 1988 and 2003, Nast (international studies, DePaul U., Chicago) presents a historical geographical account of royal concubinage in the monumental palace of Kano, Nigeria, built about 1500 and today inhabited by over a thousand persons. Historically, its secludes interior housed hundreds of concubines, whose role in the politics, economics, and culture of Kano city-state has been largely overlooked. Drawing on ethnogrpahic work and mapping data, 'Concubines and Power' presents new evidence that palace concubines controlled the production of ideigo-dyed cloth centuries before men did. The women were also key palyer in the assesment and collection of the state's earliest graon taxes, forming a powerful administrative hierarchy. In addition, royal concubines served as representatives of their birthplace, their freeborn children providing the king with human capital to cement territorial alliances through marriage." Very slight rub marks to rear cover, otherwise in excellent condition with no inscriptions. Size: 8.8" Tall. Seller Inventory # AfricaWest125

About this Item: Paris, Imprimerie F. Paillart, 1937. Couverture rigide. Condition: Bon. In-8, demi-basane, dos à nerfs - 416 pages. L'article occupe les pages 25 à 76. L'auteur dresse l'historique du Dahomey depuis le XVIIe siècle, royaume divisé initialement en trois États : Royaume de Judas, Royaume d'Adra et Pays des Foys. Le roi Adanzan était connu par ses atrocités : " Les sacrifices humains atteignaient des proportions telles que le commerce du bois d'ébène s'en trouvait singulièrement gêné : [.] les négriers de la côte se plaignaient eux aussi avec amertume de toutes ces hécatombes. " Son frère Ghézo fut proclamé roi en 1820, après de nombreux complots, principalement animés par deux négriers du Dahomey, métisses brésiliens, Francisco Felix de Souza et Domingo Martins. L'armée d'hommes et d'amazones de Ghézo échangea les esclaves avec da Souza, à l'origine d'une dynastie dotée de titres honorifiques. Le texte relate ensuite les campagnes coloniales de 1890 et 1892-1893 (cf. Colonel Dodds). Le roi Béhanzin-Aïdjéré, dit Kondo, le roi-requin, fut exilé à la Martinique, puis en Algérie où il rencontra l'ex-reine de Madagascar, Ranavalo. Le même volume présente un article : " L'Amiral de Grimouard au Port-au-Prince, d'après sa correspondance et son journal de bord (Mars 1791-Juillet 1792) ". Seller Inventory # WCESCL1122
