In a comparative analysis of the origins and impact of anti-slavery reforms on two countries in colonial coastal West Africa, Getz (African history, San Francisco State U.) traces the conditions under which reform, abolition, and compromised forms of emancipation would occur and the often overlooked central role of Africans in these processes. This approach avoids a reductionistic slave agency vs. particular regime policy focus that might miss regional variations and trends in the slave trade prior to this period.
