Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters : White Slavery in the Mediterranean, The Barbary Coast, and Italy, 1500-1800 Paperback / softback

Part of the Early Modern History: Society and Culture series

Description

This is a study that digs deeply into this 'other' slavery, the bondage of Europeans by North-African Muslims that flourished during the same centuries as the heyday of the trans-Atlantic trade from sub-Saharan Africa to the Americas.

Here are explored the actual extent of Barbary Coast slavery, the dynamic relationship between master and slave, and the effects of this slaving on Italy, one of the slave takers' primary targets and victims.
