The Diary of Antera Duke an Eighteenth Century African Slave Trader

The Diary of Antera Duke  an Eighteenth Century African Slave Trader

Extensive extracts of the threeyear diary of Efik merchant Antera Duke (1785–
1788) of Duke Town, Old Calabar (Calabar, Nigeria) survive today because of
the efforts of William Valentine and Arthur W. Wilkie a hundred years ago.

In his diary, Antera Duke (ca.1735-ca.1809) wrote the only surviving eyewitness account of the slave trade by an African merchant. A leader in late eighteenth-century Old Calabar, a cluster of Efik-speaking communities in the Cross River region, he resided in Duke Town, forty-five miles from the Atlantic Ocean in what is now southeast Nigeria. His diary, written in trade English from 1785 to 1788, is a candid account of daily life in an African community at the height of Calabar's overseas commerce. It provides valuable information on Old Calabar's economic activity both with other African businessmen and with European ship captains who arrived to trade for slaves, produce, and provisions. This new edition of Antera's diary, the first in fifty years, draws on the latest scholarship to place the diary in its historical context. Introductory essays set the stage for the Old Calabar of Antera Duke's lifetime, explore the range of trades, from slaves to produce, in which he rose to prominence, and follow Antera on trading missions across an extensive commercial hinterland. The essays trace the settlement and development of the towns that comprised Old Calabar and survey the community's social and political structure, rivalries among families, sacrifices of slaves, and witchcraft ordeals. This edition reproduces Antera's original trade-English diary with a translation into standard English on facing pages, along with extensive annotation. The Diary of Antera Duke furnishes a uniquely valuable source for the history of precolonial Nigeria and the Atlantic slave trade, and this new edition enriches our understanding of it.

The African Diary of Bob Eastman

If you like the writings of Ruark and Hemingway, you will like this book, for a taste of Africa comes through on every page. No listings of I shot this and I killed that, but rather the book offers interesting and riveting anecdotes from safaris that happened to other people while the author was in camp. Bob Eastman is a long-bow hunter who started hunting in Africa in 1967. He has hunted in just about all of the places that were open to hunting in the last 40-plus years-Tanzania, Angola, Zambia, Mozambique, Cameroon, Kenya, and many more. Whether it is a PH completely down on his luck or a hunt gone completely awry, if you like African adventure without the he-man, macho bit, you will enjoy this book. One of his fellow hunters is nearly trampled by an angry elephant in Mozambique, but Bob hardly mentions his own close calls. Eventually Bob Eastman shoots an elephant in Angola measuring an astonishing 137x133 pounds-a world record for a bow. No matter where this book takes you-the sweltering rain forest of the Cameroon, the Niassa Reserve, or the dry bush of the Kalahari-you will read much about the people encountered, noteworthy incidents, the game, and Africa itself.

Bill Bryson goes to Kenya at the invitation of CARE International, the charity dedicated to working with local communities to eradicate poverty around the world. Kenya, generally regarded as the cradle of humankind, is a land of stunning landscapes, famous game reserves, and a vibrant culture, but it also has many serious problems, including refugees, AIDS, drought and grinding poverty. It also provides plenty to worry a nervous traveller like Bill Bryson: hair-raising rides in light aircraft, tropical diseases, snakes, insects and large predators. Bryson casts his inimitable eye on a continent new to him, and the resultant diary, though short in length, contains all his trademark laugh-out-loud wit, wry observation and curious insight. All the author’s royalties from this book, as well as all profits, will go to CARE International.
