Books Info:

Atlas of Slavery free pdf " James Walvin has over many years successfully bridged the worlds of academia, teachers, and the public at large, making the latest scholarly findings on the history of slavery accessible to the widest possible audience. His new book - An Atlas of Slavery and the Slave Trade - in which he maps the history of slavery from ancient to modern times and provides a succinctly written commentary on the same, will further enhance his reputation as one of the leading international figures in raising public awareness and understanding of slavery and its impact on global history. As we approach in 2007-8 the bi-centenary of the abolition of the British and American Atlantic slave trades, Walvin's atlas reminds us of the enormity of the task that faced those who sought - and still seek - to eradicate slavery."David Richardson, Professor of Economic History, University of Hull. This is a wide-ranging and extremely useful study of the historical geography of slavery and the slave trade. It deftly brings together maps and text to shed light on the systems of slavery and the slave trade from ancient Greece to the modern world. This Atlas will be an invaluable resource for students studying slavery and for the general reader interested in this important area. It is a very welcome addition to the recent material on slavery. Professor Gad Heuman, Department of History, University of Warwick
