Description - Slavery and Resistance in Africa and Asia by Edward A. Alpers

Previously published as a special issue of the journal "Slavery and Abolition," this book brings together a series of pioneering studies, by experts in the field, on resistance to forms of bondage in Africa, Asia and the Indian Ocean world. The case studies, drawn from a wide spectrum of geographical and historical areas, analyse the causes, duration and structure of resistance and underscore similarities and contrasts across the Africa-Asian regions. Examining the reaction to resistance by the propertied classes and assessing to what degree, if any, resistance was effective in alleviating the nature of bondage the book provides a comparison with the much more publicised Atlantic system. This volume makes essential reading for students and scholars across a broad spectrum of disciplines and area studies.
