Including single-authored titles, primary source collections, and readers, The History of Disability series will address the full range of topics in disability history: policies and laws, political movements and organizations, medical treatment anf views, education, institutions and agencies, philanthropy, labor, eugenics, cultural representations, disability cultures, and more.Books in the series will trace the intersections of disability with gender, race, ethnicity, and class. While some books will focus on particular disability groups, others will attempt to excavate the unspoken, unacknowledged, and often invisible ties that bind people with different disabilities together in a common history. The individual contributions and the series as a whole will bring to light the underlying common themes that bridge the apparent divisions among physical, sensory, and mental disability.

What are the origins of this terrible institution? Why is it still practiced? How widespread is it and how does it differ from Western chattel slavery?This book tells the story of how the enslavement of Africans by Berbers, Arabs, and other Africans became institutionalized and legitimized throughout Muslim Africa. A classic, pioneering study, first published in 1971 and extensively updated in this revised edition, Slavery in the History of Black Muslim Africa provides an expansive portrait ofdomestic slavery from the tenth to the nineteenth century in the context of the religious, social, and economic conditions of the African Islamic world.Drawing on a host of accounts from contemporary observers such as Leo Africanus and Ibn Battuta, Fisher and Fisher descr
