A SHORT HISTORY OF TRANSATLANTIC SLAVERY
The author discusses the rise of a distinctly Creole culture; slave revolts; and the rise of abolitionism, when the ideas of Montesquieu, Wilberforce, Quakers and others led to the slave trade's demise. At a time when the menace of human trafficking is of increasing concern worldwide, this account reflects on the deeper motivations of slavery.
