Product Description


“This first-rate new study discusses the size and profitability of the slave business, the people who engaged in it, and its consequences in European and American history.”—New Yorker

“[The Transatlantic Slave Trade] corrects many misconceptions and stereotypes. It is of great value as a compendium of information about the European side of the trade and as a synthesis of recent scholarly work on the subject. . . . Intelligent and persuasive.”—New York Times Book Review
(New York Times Book Review)

“A work of substance that will serve as a general reference for some time.”—Journal of American History
(Journal of American History)

“Useful for the historian looking for a synthesis and overview of the literature. . . . A valuable source book for anyone interested in the slave trade, and it is an often fascinating account.”—The Complete Review
(The Complete Review)

By not me - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The original 1981 edition of "The Transatlantic Slave Trade" (the one I read) was a comprehensive look at the Atlantic slave trade from its origins to its abolition in the 1800s. The book was based on a deep reading of the secondary literature, and professional historians probably enjoyed it. However, the book was a problem for general readers. It was wordy, disorganized, and repetitive. The print was tiny. Too much space was devoted to "insider" arguments with other historians and to revisions of popular misconceptions of the slave trade (the author was eager to prove that the slave trade wasn't super-profitable for traders or super-lethal for slaves). Worst of all, parts were little more than heaps of facts, dates, and statistics. Hopefully the revised edition is better written and edited.
