Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

The role of Indian merchant communities was one of the essential and deciding factors in the extraordinary development of East Africa Slave trade, mainly due to the expansion of the caravan trade with the interior of East Africa, and to the invitation by the Omani Sultans to finance, help administer the state apparatus, and collect customs dues, which occured in Sub-Saharan East Africa and also on the Island of Zanzibar during the nineteenth century, where they were extremely active.
