Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1680. John Thornton.

Africa and Africans in the Making of the Atlantic World, 1400-1680

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1992. Paperback. xxxviii, 309p., softbound illustrated solely with five skimpy line maps (a 1998 reprint may be better-furnished), anyway, theoretical cartography by a scholar of African history who had taught in Zambia, later doing research made possible by a Carter G. Woodson Institute fellowship. Thornton builds on Fernand Braudel's Mediterranean studies (who he says insufficiently valued Africa's role).
