Abstract

The article considers the theoretical discussion in the magazines «The Nineteenth Century» and «The Fortnightly Review», held in the 80–90 years of the XIX century, on the problems of the struggle against slave trade in the East Africa. The British missionaries, J. G. Rogers, W. M. Torrens and J. Farler (Archdeacon of Magila) came out in favour of the project of complex peace work among African tribes. The captain Lugard argued the necessity of the radical stopping of the slave trade and slave-owning in Zanzibar.
