Transatlantic Slavery: An Introduction

by Richard Benjamin and David Fleming
£9.99   paperback  Liverpool University Press (2010)

Transatlantic Slavery: An Introduction by Richard Benjamin and David Fleming Over a four-hundred-year period at least twelve million Africans were taken into slavery in the largest forced migration in human history. This introductory book, which draws upon a wealth of material held by the International Slavery Museum, tells their story and examines the legacy of this bloody trade.
 
Richly illustrated and with a foreword by Reverend Jesse Jackson, Transatlantic Slavery: An Introduction will be required reading for all those approaching the subject for the first time.

"The enslavement of Africans fuelled the economic development of the US and the world so in that sense, African people, whether in the US or Britain, are creditors, not debtors. From finance to cotton, shipping and trade, no economic development in the world could have evolved without the contributions as enslaved people of African people."
(From the foreword by Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.)
