Intercourse and Crosscurrents in the Atlantic World begins with an analysis of Efik society, and of its religious and social institutions prior to the Atlantic world, looking at the connections between Efik traders and peoples further inland along the Akpayafe, Calabar, Cross and Great Kwa rivers. Chapters follow on 'British trans-Atlantic voyagers' (where the question of the slave trade is analysed), what Imbua calls 'Humanitarian voyages' (where the rise of the missions is the main question), and 'Colony and empire', before the final chapter, 'Not one-way traffic', argues for the mutual importance of this relationship; here, Imbua adds to the growing body of work which reveals the active role of many African peoples in constructing Atlantic histories.
