The Atlantic Slave Trade


Copyright American Library Association, used with permission.

This new edition of Klein's accessible introduction to the Atlantic slave trade (1st ed., CH, Oct'99, 37-1079) integrates the continued advancements of knowledge that occurred within the past decade. In this new edition, Klein (Stanford) pays particular attention to the work on the subject being produced in Africa, Latin America, and France while integrating the continued quest to quantify the Atlantic slave trade through the data publicly available at The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database . The book's structure has not changed; the organization is still topical, and Klein works to alleviate some of the common remaining misconceptions of the slave trade. Designed to introduce the current understanding of the Atlantic slave trade to a general readership, the book does an excellent job exploring multiple aspects of the subject, including why African slavery, African and European participation in the trade, and the consequences of the trade, while demonstrating that the slave trade was not static but changed over time and place. The work, which includes maps, numerous updated figures and tables, and a bibliographical essay, provides a solid introduction for those new to the field. Suitable for both library and classroom use. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries. T. M. Reese Univ. of North Dakota
