Abolitions as a Global Experience
Hideaki Suzuki (ed)
A collection of papers that sets the movements to abolish slavery and servitude generally in the 19th century in a global context. Was it just a reaction to an international projection of British morality or were there other factors at work too? The book examines what was happening in Africa, the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean and East Asia as well as internal developments in Russia and Japan. Against this background the contributors move on to look at the aftermath of abolition and how it was commemorated by later generations. 303 pages with figures, tables, a bibliography and an index.
