Abstract:This fifth volume of the eight-volume publication 'General history of Africa' covers the history of Africa from the 16th to the 18th century. Two major themes emerge: the continuing internal evolution of the States and cultures of Africa during this period, and the increasing involvement of Africa in external trade. In North Africa, the Ottomans conquer Egypt and establish regencies in Tripoli, Tunis and Algiers. In Africa south of the Sahara some of the larger, older States collapse and new power bases emerge. Along the coast, especially of West Africa, Europeans establish a trading network which becomes the focus of the international slave trade. The consequences of this trade for Africa are explored. It is argued that the long-term global consequences include the foundation of the present world-economy with its inbuilt inequalities.
