This collection chronicles the slave trade as a key global phenomenon which influenced the course of commerce, philosophy, morality, literature, empire, law, government, and international relations. Part II covers the activities of the Company of Royal Adventurers of England Trading with Africa in detail, expands coverage of the debates over the abolition of the slave trade, and provides documents that illustrate the slave trade in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, North America, and Europe. Including treatises, correspondence and reports between officials and naval officers, leaders, and many early works on Africa and colonies from the imperial powers in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, Part II offer scholars the history, experience and significance of slavery from a transnational perspective.
