Chapter 3 argues that, as with other sectors, the caravan slave trade was influenced by the Husaynid beys' economic reforms and the desire to capitalize on expanding European trade. It shows how Tunisian foreign trade affected economic developments in the central Sudan, particularly Katsina in Hausaland after the 1780s.
