Abstract:This collection of essays offers a new paradigm, in which the trans-Saharan and trans-Atlantic worlds of slavery are brought into focus under the same lens. While slave studies have considered either trans-Atlantic or Islamic slavery, this study combines the enslavement of Africans in America and the lands of Islam in one volume.
