1st edition. Oxford Studiews in African Affairs series. The Effects of Changing Commercial Relations on the Vili Kingdom of Loango. "The Loango Coast lies between Cape Lopez in the North and the Congo river in the south. In the eighteenth century it was one of the most important sources of slaves for the Transatlantic Trade. This study traces the development of trade in the area, starting with the pre-slave trade era, following the story through the slave trade period, and looking briefly at the legitimate trade that had developed by the mid-nineteenth century. The book also focuses on the Loango Kingdom and considers how the indigenous Vili society was affected by these varying commercial conditions." Pp.xiv/193, 4 maps.
