The terrible story of African slavery in the British colonies of the West Indies and North America is told with clarity and compassion in this classic history.
Black Ivory: A History of British Slavery contends that during the colonial period the need for labor to produce sugar, tobacco, rum, coffee, and rice, which were becoming mainstays of the European diet, led to the enslavement of millions of Africans who contributed substantially to the economic development of Britain and the Western World. Black Ivory, however, focuses on the daily life of the slaves during the colonial period. it compares and contrasts slavery in Britain, the West Indies, and the United States, thus enabling the reader to gain insight into the different historical circumstances and outcomes of slavery in these areas. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
