How do we understand Africa's historical systems of slavery, and what are the enduring political, economic and cultural consequences of those systems for Africa today? What happened after its abolition? Did former masters take action to maintain their privileges? Did former slaves and their descendants resist their continued marginalisation? Or did former masters and former slaves work together to reconfigure their relations with one another? The essays in this volume thoughtfully address these questions by exploring the results from 14 historical studies.
