An interesting, informative, very readable and factual account of Wilberforce’s life from childhood through to the abolition of the Slave Trade, presenting him as an intellectual character with a mind of his own, refusing to sign the 39 Articles when getting his degree because he was unsure about some of the Anglican tenets, and responding to stronger influences from the likes of Wesley Whitfield, Doddridge and Newton, leading to his conversion. Due recognition is given to support from the Dissenters (especially Methodists and Quakers), Granville Sharpe and the Clapham Sect, and to the opposition, including the Church of England with vested interests in the West India Plantations.
Victory, when it came in 1807, was only the abolition of the Slave Trade, not slavery. Slaves continued long after but at least it was the beginning of the end, so full marks to Metaxas when he says, ‘The slave’s humanity had been established; now it must be honoured’ (p 227).
Not such good marks, however, for the Introduction, marred by an encomium and a batch of extravagant claims, such as that he ‘destroyed an entire way of seeing the world . . . overturned the European civilisation’s view not only of slavery, but of almost everything in the human sphere . . . was simply the greatest social reformer in the history of the world . . . . (and that) . . . the America we know wouldn’t exist without Wilberforce’. Likening him to someone who finds a cure for a disease that is ravishing the world so that ‘no one suffers from it again— and within a generation or two no one remembers it ever existed’ has a hollow ring when one thinks of trafficking, child abuse and many other forms of slavery around the world. None of this however should detract from the book as a whole.
