The Transatlantic Slave Trade

£19.99

Product description

This is the first book by a professional historian that relates the general history of the transatlantic slave trade. It explains why the trade existed, how it figured in the Atlantic world, with attention paid to economics, demography, epidemiology, wars, and diplomacy, while seeking to place it in its contemporary context. The book is in fine condition, with slight spine end bumping and an area of light foxing speckles on the front text block edge. The dust jacket has some small light creasing along top edges and a few handling marks on the back. In a dedication written in black ink on the front free end paper, the author expresses appreciation to Gordon Mingay for suggesting to him that he should write the book.
