The Atlantic Slave Trade in World History, Paperback / softback Book

The Atlantic Slave Trade in World History Paperback / softback

Part of the Themes in World History series

Description

In The Atlantic Slave Trade in World History, Jeremy Black presents a compact yet comprehensive survey of slavery and its impact on the world, primarily centered on the Atlantic trade.

Opening with a clear discussion of the problems of defining slavery, the book goes on to investigate the Atlantic slave trade from its origins to abolition, including comparisons to other systems of slavery outside the Atlantic region and the persistence of modern-day slavery.

Crucially, the book does not ask readers to abandon their emotional ties to the subject, but puts events in context so that it becomes clear how such an institution not only arose, but flourished.

Black shows that slavery and the slave trade were not merely add-ons to the development of Western civilization, but intimately linked to it.

In a vital and accessible narrative, The Atlantic Slave Trade in World History enables students to understand this terrible element of human history and how it shaped the modern world.
