A very well written, entertaining but sad reflection on Britain's attitude concerning and participation in this most despicable of trades.
Hard to believe that Africans were in the same category as non human work animals, and how local African tribes used the trade as means to defeat/punish their enemies and enrich themselves in the process.
But was Dido Belle really 'a slave' as mentioned in the book? The accounts of her life on display at 'Kenwood House' in Hampstead Heath appear to suggest to the contrary?
