Austin, Gareth (2002) Between abolition and jihad: the Asanti response to the ending of the Atlantic slave trade, 1807 - 1896. In: Law, Robin, (ed.) From slave trade to 'legitimate' commerce: the commercial transition in nineteenth-century West Africa. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, pp. 93-118. ISBN 9780521523066
This edited collection, written by leading specialists, deals with nineteenth-century commercial transition in West Africa: the ending of the Atlantic slave trade and development of alternative forms of "legitimate" trade. Approaching the subject from an African perspective, the case studies consider the effects of transition on the African societies involved, and provide new insights into the history of precolonial Africa and the slave trade, origins of European imperialism, and longer term issues of economic development in Africa.
