Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821421077, Paperback)"Allen offers important insights that are likely to inform the debate on the Indian Ocean slave trade for years.… The volume’s annotated tables alone speak to several years of painstaking research on a variety of sources … a significant contribution that should find a place in the library of any scholar of the slave trade." — African Studies Quarterly
Between 1500 and 1850, European traders shipped hundreds of thousands of African, Indian, Malagasy, and Southeast Asian slaves to ports throughout the Indian Ocean world. The activities of the British, Dutch, French, and Portuguese traders who operated in the Indian Ocean demonstrate that European slave trading was not confined largely to the Atlantic but must now be viewed as a truly global phenomenon. European slave trading and abolitionism in the Indian Ocean also led to the development of an increasingly integrated movement of slave, convict, and indentured labor during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, the consequences of which resonated well into the twentieth century.
