Slave Trade in the Atlantic World - Part 2

Slave Trade in the Atlantic World - Part 2

The largest and most ambitious project of its kind, Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive is a thematically organized, four-part historical archive devoted to the scholarly study and understanding of slavery from a multinational perspective. An unprecedented collection developed under the guidance of a board of scholars, it offers never before available research opportunities and endless teaching possibilities. This collection is the most comprehensive repository of resources related to slavery to date; it provides the seminal works needed by scholars in the field.

Part II, The Slave Trade in the Atlantic World continues this ground-breaking series by charting the inception of slavery in Africa and its rise throughout the Atlantic world, with particular focus on the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.

This collection features a wide range of materials, from monographs and individual papers to company records, newspapers, and a variety of government documents. More international in scope than Part I, this collection was developed by an international editorial board with scholars specializing in European, African, Latin American/Caribbean, and United States aspects of the slave trade.

In its entirety, Slavery and Anti-Slavery will consist of more than five million cross-searchable pages sourced from books, pamphlets, newspapers, periodicals, legal documents, court records, monographs, manuscripts and maps from many different countries – a unique achievement in the field of historic archives.
