There are so many books on African history and cultures. I found this book browsing at the University of Ghana bookstore, and I’m glad I picked it up. Wars over people clearly intensified with the growth of the external slave trades – notably the Atlantic system between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, and in eastern Africa during the nineteenth century – which unquestionably involved new levels of organised violence, economic in objective; warfare escalated as the export of people became more lucrative, while expanding states likewise needed slaves to maintain levels of domestic.
