Chapter 19: Africa and the World
1400 to 1800

8: Mon, Oct 1, 2018

Please post in the forum for the day a short essay in response to this question:

Certainly coercive power is a large element in the development of a slave trade. We are moving into a period in which the relative exercise of power by large states internationally changes how they work. But aside from explicit actions by one state with respect to another, what are some of the other channels through which power can be exercised? How does economic power, even if not supported by military action, help form coercive policies in different areas? How did those play out in Africa?
