Overview

By comparing the strategies of colonial administrators, slave owners, and slaves across these two regions and throughout the nineteenth century, Slavery and Reform in West Africa reveals not only the reasons for the astounding success of slave owners but also the factors that could, and in some cases did, lead to slave liberations. These findings have serious implications for the wider study of slavery and emancipation and for the history of Africa generally.
