Slavery in The Great Lakes Region of East Africa

Henri Medard Shane Doyle
James Currey Ltd, décembre 2007

Looks at the perceptions of one of the main themes of African history : slavery. There was no single form of slavery and the line between enslaved and non-slave labour was fine. This work challenges the assertion that domestic slavery increased in Africa as the result of the international trade.
