Overview

There is a rich documentary trail to follow on the topic of African slavery in the Islam of the Mediterranean, but relatively little historical work has been done on the subject. Hunwick (Northwestern U.) and Powell (U. of Georgia) seek to begin to correct the dearth of research by presenting a collection of primary materials related to the Islamic enslavement of the peoples of Central Africa. Documents are organized under the headings: basic texts on slavery, Muslim views on slavery, perceptions of Africans in Arabic and Turkish writings, slave capture, the Middle Passage, slave markets, eunuchs and concubines, domestic service, agricultural labor, military service, religion and community, freedom and post-slavery, abolition of slavery, and a slave narrative.
