Description: Hawthorne reevaluates long-held notions about the Atlantic slave trade's impact on a number of "stateless" - or decentralized - societies in Africa's Guinea-Bissau region. He shows that decentralized societies were by no means passive victims of the slave trade, as commonly depicted in the literature, but vigorously defended themselves from the incursions of the raiders. The imperatives of defense and their participation in the trade led to a fundamental reordering of decentralized societies, especially in the realm of agriculture and agricultural labor, as rice became the staple crop in the region. Contrary to standard interpretations, Hawthorne shows that rice production and capacities for self-defense actually led to population increases among the region's decentralized societies.
