Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0747807086, Paperback)This book gives an overview of the trans-Atlantic slave trade from its sixteenth century beginnings until its final abolition in the nineteenth century. It covers the main countries involved and explains the inner workings of the trade and the developments that made it easier and more profitable as the centuries passed. On the human level, the book uses the stories of the enslaved, often in their own words, to try to convey the horrors endured by these victims. Finally, it details the fight against slavery both by politicians such as William Wilberforce and by the military might of the Royal Navy.
