This socio-economic history focuses on the agricultural population of an East African region characterized by a high environmental diversity. It demonstrates the crucial importance of local agencies in the shaping of living conditions during the transition from the upswing of the trans-regional trade in the late precolonial period to the beginnings of colonial development.
