Full Description


Hawthorne reevaluates long-held notions about the Atlantic slave trade's impact on a number of "stateless"--or decentralized--societies in Africa's Guinea-Bissau region. He shows that decentralized societies were by no means passive victims of the slave trade, as commonly depicted in the literature, but vigorously defended themselves from the incursions of the raiders.
