Description

This work contributes to the study of slavery in Africa by emphasizing the roles Africans played both as slaves and slavers. It uses comparative and eclectic approaches to demonstrate that in the different types of indigenous states in Africa, slavery was never a common phenomenon. In Centralized states it emanated from indigenous servitude and formed an integral component of the elaborate kinship system. In the non-Centralized states it was introduced by the trans-system and it fulfilled an economic function.
