Reviews - What do customers think about The Trading States of the Oil Rivers (Classics in African Anthropology)?

Rivers enlightenment  Jul 7, 2005
Mr Jones presents the Niger Delta of Nigeria in an unbiased statement of fact. Based on his analysis, it explains why the region today is experiencing development crisis.
By reading this book, individuals concerned with the Niger Delta and its people are able to understand why this crisis exists and possibly apply a better understanding to solving some of the social problems.
Excellent resource  Feb 7, 2004
One of the few trusted sources for information about creation and evolution of the Kalabari kingdom of southern Nigeria.
Outstanding Study  Jan 25, 2001
First published in 1963, this work is a classic in African studies. G. I. Jones examines the development of "canoe houses," trading companies that dominated much of life in the ports of Eastern Nigeria. Jones offers insight on the development of trading companies, the organization of the slave trade, and the nature of slavery itself in this region.

This work should prove interesting to those studying African-American history. Many people, especially Ibo (Igbo), came to America through these ports. See Philip D. Curtin, The Atlantic Slave Trade: A Census; Daniel C. Littlefield, Rice and Slaves: Ethnicity and the Slave Trade in Colonial South Carolina; and the relevant and fascinating essays in David Eltis, et al., Routes to Slavery.

For the development of similar canoe houses in another region of Africa, see Robert W. Harms, River of Wealth, River of Sorrow: The Central Zaire Basin in the Era of the Slave and Ivory Trade, 1500-1891. For the nature of slavery in different African societies, see the studies in Suzanne Miers and Igor Kopytoff, editors, Slavery in Africa.
