Warfare & Diplomacy in Pre-colonial West Africa

Univ of Wisconsin Press, 1989 - 164 pages

This new edition of the well-known innovative study of the relations of the peoples of West Africa in the precolonial period covers a period of some four or five hundred years, up to the last decades of the nineteenth century. Smith takes account of outside influences but focuses primarily on what happened between African states before the partition of the area and the establishment of colonies.
