what a tremendous book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sugar Barons (Kindle Edition)
Incredibly detailed, thoroughly researched history of the sugar trade in the Caribbean. Astonishing breadth and attention to detail at the same time.
He uses these skills of overarching analysis and fine detail to deliver a forensic attack on the sugar trade and Britain's role in it. Above all the complete dependence of this trade on slaves. Millions of lives lost just so Anglos could add some empty calories to their diet and rot their teeth.
A brilliant book. Well written and engaging.
