Chapter 2 surveys internal reforms and Tunisian foreign trade from 1759 to 1814, placing the slave trade within this broad framework. Initially these reforms were undertaken to strengthen the autonomy of Tunis, but thereafter Tunisian beys took advantage of expanding European trade to redefine commercial relations to benefit Tunisia.
