The original title of the book: Tippu Tip: Ivory, Slavery and Discovery in the Scramble for Africa
This carefully researched but highly readable study fills a significant gap in the literature on Africa during the early colonial period, both because of Tippu Tip s historical importance, and because we still tend to see the immense changes of those years mainly through the eyes of European colonizers and explorers. This book is a rare and valuable exception. --Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold s Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial AfricaIn a work of meticulous scholarship but also rich in anecdote, Mr Laing uses his extensive first-hand knowledge of the Arab world and its culture to open up not just the exotic world and travels of a legendary Arab trader in East Africa, but to explore from an original angle and with new insight the politics and practicalities of the European Scramble for the Dark Continent in the second half of the 19th century, and the work of explorers there. --Simon Heffer, writer and political commentatorWith this new life setting Tippu Tip, the Arab trader in ivory and slaves, in his wider context, Stuart Laing gives us the seamy underside of the Scramble for Eastern Africa. It was as much an Arab, Indian, and indeed African, scramble, based on the island market of Stinkibar , as European. White explorers, soldiers, and officials were the foam on the top of this multicultural tide. --John Lonsdale, Emeritus Professor of Modern African History, University of Cambridge
