This was trade which – like the slave trade before it – was of considerable economic benefit to Europe at a time of industrialization, and which, moreover, humanitarians hoped would bring economic and social progress to Africa. ” States whose socioeconomic and political structures were so geared toward the capture and export of slaves, or whose military ethos demanded the kind of cyclical military activity which resulted in the seizure of war captives, struggled to make the transition to agricultural exports.

Yet as the nineteenth century progressed, a number of societies underwent the same kinds of changes experienced in Tanzania: new forms of social and political structure emerged under stronger, more centralized systems of leadership. Like the Nyamwezi, the Kamba, too, would become energetic participants in global trade. The themes of local entrepreneurship and the fluidity of identities are most dramatically manifest in the Nyamwezi, who did not exist as a “people” before the commercial and political dynamics of the mid-nineteenth century.

Ivory was also in increasing demand from the late eighteenth century: India remained an important market, but East African ivory was sought in Europe and North America, too, and throughout the nineteenth century the European trade became ever more important, especially after the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869.
