PAGE, Melvin E. The Manyema Hordes of Tippu Tip : A Case Study in Social Stratification and the Slave Trade in Eastern Africa. Excerpted from The International Journal of African Historical Studies, Vol. 1 (1974). Pp 69-84. 8vo, corner stapled. “Contemporary observers and historians alike have laid particular stress on the chaos resulting from the expansion of the slave trade into certain areas of eastern Africa, but have paid considerably less attention to the emergence of a new social order in some of those regions asa consequence of this expansion. [...] We shall be concerned here chiefly with those Africans who joined in the Arab and Swahili penetration and exploitation of the Manyema region of eastern Zaire, with their activities and associations, ad [sic] also with their infrequent emergence as independent corporate groups. And finally, we shall use this case study to draw comparisons and suggest a pattern of social interaction which followed upon the slave trade in eastern Africa.” (pp 69-70).
