Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
This catalogue of the collection of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, highlights the unique insights it provides into the history of slavery from the mid 16th to the early 20th century. More than 600 artefacts and works of art, many illustrated here for the first time, are examined. Ten essays by leading scholars set the items in their historical context, demonstrating the scale and brutality of slavery, the extent of African resistance, and the efforts to achieve abolition and emancipation.
