Summary

Looks at the background and events of the slave trade and examines its lasting impact on history.

Each title in the Events and Outcomes series presents a two-part investigation of a major event or significant era in world history. A detailed narrative, drawing on original sources, pictures and photographs is complemented by an analysis of the immediate significance of events and their place in the bigger picture.

The books go on to examine not just for contemporaries, but for the generations that followed. Complete with comprehensive glossaries and timelines, the Events and Outcomes titles provide both fact and analysis, guiding pupils to a deeper understanding of some of the world's greatest historical events.

How and why did the transatlantic slave trade develop? What kind of life did an African captured into slavery lead? Who were the Abolitionists and why did the campaign for abolition last so long? What were the effects of slavery on post-emancipation US life? Has slavery really been abolished in the world today? This title examines the key questions behind slavery and the slave trade, with a wide ranging survey from the ancient world to the practice of slavery today. It looks at the driving force from the ancient world to the practice of slavery today. It looks at the driving forces and vested interests behind the slave trade and assesses the legacy slavery has had on working practices today worldwide.
