staying power, a right direction
on 6 May 2005
i have read this book 3 times and am now on my 4th outing with it. it holds a wealth of information for those wanting an insight into this definitive part of history, without some of the more polarised views that particular literature on the subject of slavery possess. it's good. peter fryer names his sources and all of these are easily checked and cross checked. i recommend this book to black and white, asian and indian alike, who may want an objective tool in summarising over 400 years of 'justified' murder, rape, theft and genocidal madness against a great people in their own right. well worth the money.
