Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating and cruel history of the transatlantic slave trade, then pay attention....

Did you know that during the 18th century on certain Caribbean islands, such as Jamaica and Antigua, roughly 90 percent of the population were enslaved? If you want to learn what led to this shocking turn of events, then you're in the right place. 

This guide will take you on a journey across time, from the late 1400s to the very end of the 19th century, as well as across the globe, from Europe, across Africa, to the American continents. It will tell you the story of human greed and heartlessness toward fellow human beings, and it will lead you through the painful and often macabre voyage of the transatlantic slave trade. You’ll learn how this deplorable act grew from its “humble” beginnings into one of the most lucrative businesses, in which human lives were nothing but a commodity before morality, along with other incentives, put a stop to it.

In this Captivating Guide to the transatlantic slave trade, you’ll learn some of these facts: 

  • Why and how the slave trade began
  • Where most of the enslaved people came from and where most of them were shipped to
  • The European nations that participated in the slave trade
  • How the slave trade network grew and evolved through time
  • The role African nations played in trafficking their own neighbors

Exploitation and the residual effects

I’m curious to know what other companies benefited from slavery. I think the industrial revolution could have been explained more as to why slavery was ushered out. I do like how the author went into racism hs replaced slavery in some form but racism is far deeper than not getting an opportunity at decent income for your family.

I do agree slavery continues its different forms like sex slavery or debt slavery to banks, especially the ones that prey upon folks who are new to the credit system.

Glossy

The depravity of slavery could never be covered in one book. This book does a great job of glossing over the subject and being fairly universal in its descriptions.

This in itself is not wrong, I would appreciate a stronger stance against the agents that participated in the commerce of Africans.

Furthermore, if slavery was kept in its own national borders, not for international commerce, the institution would not have devolved to its final product. Thus, the introduction of Europeans into the process should have been more front and center versus the African involvement chapter.

Atrocious what one human has done to another.

I knew from an early age that school only taught a very "whitewashed" version of history, but even what we learned then just broke my heart. Maybe that was another reason it took me so long to dig deeper. It truly is atrocious what one human will do to another, especially for monetary gain or because they feel it is their right through their religious beliefs.
