"With a sure hand, the authors analyze Duala trading history with reference to the historiography of the more important trading communities of southeastern Nigeria. Their coverage of economic, political, social, and cultural changes will be of interest to scholars of a number of disciplines." David Northup, Journal of Interdisciplinary History "...let us be grateful for their thorough history of the Duala which will not be superceded soon." Jan Vansina, American Historical Review
