Sample text

Desert, savannah and river created three environments for politics and warfare. The desert’s thin population, unfavourable conditions for agriculture, and open country made it a land of cattle-, horse- and camel-raising nomads and hence pre-eminently of cavalries. In the savannah and Sahel environments, with denser populations of peasants living along rivers or in villages favoured with sufficient water, leaders raised infantry as well as cavalry, though they still strove to use cavalries to master their flat and open country.

This situation gave great advantages to the nomads of the desert, and they intervened freely in the civil wars and inter-state struggles to their south, sometimes as invited participants by the losers, sometimes on their own when they sensed that no one could mount an effective resistance to them. After 1722 the situation was confused by the attempt of the ruler of Morocco to use the desert nomads to his advantage. 17 Civil wars between rival branches of the ruling body established a similar dynamic on the middle Niger, when the Moroccan Pashalik was routinely divided by rivalries that were often exploited by the nomads of the nearby desert.

72 For a long time the Moroccan invaders who replaced Songhay on the Niger bend after 1591, soon known locally as the “Arma” or “shooters,” had a virtual monopoly on these weapons, maintaining contacts with Morocco to that end, while their immediate neighbours to the south often lacked guns entirely. The contrast was so sharp that as late as 1716 the “Bambara” leader of Deba was wrongly supposed to have defied the Pasha of Timbuktu by saying, “If you are a man, I am a man, if you have people with you, I have people with me.
