    For more than three centuries, slave ships carried millions of people from the coasts of Africa across the Atlantic to the New World. Much is known of the slave trade and the American plantation complex, but little of the ships that made it all possible. In The Slave Ship, award-winning historian Marcus Rediker draws on 30 years of research in maritime archives to create an unprecedented history of these vessels and the human drama acted out on their rolling decks.

    Overall

    The power of the stories in this book make it the perfect audiobook. The incredible greed, disconnection from and assault on humanity chronicled here were, for me, matched by the stories of resistance and of love and compassion that survived the unimaginable. This book brought me to tears and for me it was hearing the stories that had such an impact. I felt like I was taken on an amazing journey.
