Civil Society" has been experiencing a global renaissance among social movements and political thinkers during the last two decades. This collection of original papers by junior and senior scholars offers an important al dimension to the debate by examining the historical roots of civil society in Germany and Britain from the seventeenth-century revolutions to the beginning of the welfare state.

Sean Stilwell's Paradoxes of Power highlights an important facet of slavery that has long been ignored in the discourse. This book seeks to spark the debate on male royal slavery, the same way the works of Paul Lovejoy, Fred Cooper, Jean Boyd, and Beverly Mack have done for the study of women slaves used as concubines.

Moreover, my earlier book was concerned with power, where it comes from and in what ways and with what consequences it. .Another entails addressing the role of a single individual, even Stalin, in the gigantic sweep of history.

Moreover, my earlier book was concerned with power, where it comes from and in what ways and with what consequences it is exercised, and so is this one. The story emanates from Stalin’s office but not from his point of view. Of course, a marriage of biography and history can enhance both.

Looking at the history of this precolonial West African past introduces students to the many layers and complexities . These examples give a taste of the richness of the histories of exchanges between West African kingdoms and European societies in the precolonial period.

Looking at the history of this precolonial West African past introduces students to the many layers and complexities of both African and world history, and to how the histories of Africa and the world have interacted for many centuries. It is an opportunity both to build on pre-existing study skills which students have developed at GCSE, and to develop a more complex understanding both of African history, and of history itself as a discipline.

This book is a comprehensive history of slavery in Africa from the earliest times to the end of the twentieth century, when slavery in most parts of the continent ceased to exist. Sean Stilwell pays special attention to the development of settled agriculture, the invention of kinship, 'big men' and centralized states, the role of African economic production and exchange, the interaction of local structures of dependence with the external slave trades (transatlantic, trans-Saharan, Indian Ocean), and the impact of colonialism on slavery in the twentieth century.

This book is a history of royal slavery in the Sokoto Caliphate of what is now Nigeria. Shaped by the broader literature on Islam and slavery in Africa, Stilwell's study seeks to understand the historical relationship between Islam, Islamic politics, and the use of slaves in Kano - a major city in the Caliphate. By doing this, Stilwell opens a new comparative dimension in African social history. This work integrates the history of the most important state of 19th-century Islamic Africa with the broader Islamic world. Based on highly original research, as well as extensive interviews of the descendants of slaves in Kano, this book marks a significant contribution to the literature on Islam, comparative slavery, and African history.

Stilwell outlines how and why slaves acquired political power. He argues that, in this African context, slavery and power were not mutually exclusive. Contesting Claude Meillassoux's argument that slaves were by definition socially isolated and kinless "outsiders," Stilwell shows how slaves constructed family networks and took advantage of court politics to contest the terms of their subjugation. In this process, royal slaves aimed not for absolute western-style "freedom," but fought to gain access to, and in some cases redefine, the political and social system of the dominant, aristocratic culture.
