Abstract:I. Introduction: Very little seems to have been done to find out more about the people with whom the Europeans traded, their way of life, and the effect on them of this new intrusion from the sea. It is with the economic life of the West African coastal peoples that this article is primarily concerned. West Africa is defined here as that piece of land stretching from the River Senegal in the north to Cape St. Catherine in the southeast, and including the off-shore islands, of which the most important are the Cape Verde group and the islands of the Gulf of Guinea, Sao Thome, 0 Principe, Annobon and Fernando Po; II. General Background; III. Village Economies; IV. Regional Economies. Pt 2 Trade. Notes.
