Book Description

Anti-slavery colonies – settlements for freed slaves that were intended to prevent the slave trade in West Africa – were established by both American and British societies. Although they occasionally attempted to work together in support of these settlements and their anti-slave trade goals, the societies were more frequently in conflict. Looking for the origin of this Anglo-American rivalry, this book applies a comparative approach to freed slave settlers in Sierra Leone and Liberia. It examines the foundations of these societies, their contribution to the development of 'Civilization, Commerce, and Christianity' as a practical approach to anti-slavery interventions in West Africa, and the points of conflict between them that fed rivalries in America and Britain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 22 Dec. 2012
By Paul
This is an excellent work. It has been carefully researched and is well reasoned, while retaining an approachable writing style. While some have written on the comparative politics of Liberia and Sierra Leone, few have done this while writing so convincingly, and with especial historical focus, on the roles of slavery, imperialism and humanitarian intervention. Thoroughly recommended for those with an interest in these areas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent purchase 20 Jan. 2014
While I was new to this topic, and came to it chiefly from a knowledge of humanitarian intervention, I found the text digestible, interesting and thoroughly substantiated. For those with an interest in slavery, empire and humanitarian intervention, this is a must read.
