Product Description

Review

'The incomparable James Walvin has done it again: he has crafted a beautifully written and deeply informed single volume history of the Atlantic slave trade and its consequences on three continents. This book is full of fresh ideas and astounding detail; it is at once great storytelling, punctuated with real people and voices, and an unblinking analysis of numerous great questions and paradoxes about the power of slavery in creating the Atlantic world over four centuries.'- David W. Blight, Professor of American History at Yale University and Director of the Gilder-Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation 'In writing Crossings James Walvin exposes the human tragedy embodied in the Atlantic slave trade. He also reveals once again his own remarkable talent for making publicly accessible advances in historical research on transatlantic slavery.' - David Richardson, Director of the Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation and Professor of Economic History at the University of Hull, England, co-author of the Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade (2010)

About the Author
