Slavery in the Great Lakes Region of East Africa (Eastern African Studies)by Henri Medard
Synopses & Reviews
Slavery in the Great Lakes Region of East Africa 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 nonslave labor was fine. This book challenges the assertion that domestic slavery increased in Africa as the result of the international trade.Slavery in this region was not a uniform phenomenon and the line between enslaved and non-slave labor was fine. Kinship ties could mark the difference between free and unfree labor. Social categories were not always clear-cut and the status of a slave could change within a lifetime.
