Promotional Information

"An extremely important pioneering study; social and labor history, very conspicuous in the literature about most other parts of Africa, have been largely ignored in most historical treatments of the Sudan. Slavery, in contrast, has been prominent in previous discussions of the Sudan, but normally as an exotic Oriental vice that vanished painlessly under the reign of European rationality. This book will command an immediate and permanent revision of the field." -- Jay L. Spaulding, Associate Professor of History, Kean College of New Jersey
