Transformations in Slavery: A History of Slavery in Africa
By Paul E. Lovejoy
Why this book?
The first section of my novel covers Ama’s enslavement and life as a slave within Africa. In this classic history, Paul Lovejoy examines how indigenous African slavery developed from the fifteenth to the early twentieth centuries within an international context, leading to the Atlantic trade conducted by Europeans and Americans. He describes the processes of enslavement and the marketing of slaves and assesses slavery's role in African and world history.
