This chapter has two main goals. First, it explains how slavery mirrors other economic pursuits in becoming globalized. Second, it looks at the traditional types of slavery practiced in Mauritania and Sudan, in order to take up the thorny question of the “redemption” of slaves in Sudan and to shed a little light on this problem by contextualizing it historically and socially.
