For centuries social and economic relations within the Atlantic space
were dominated by slavery and the transatlantic slave trade from Africa
to the Americas. By the slowly and arduously achieved end of this trade,
slave labour in the Americas was replaced in many cases by other forms
of coerced labour of African Caribbean people or Indian, Chinese,
African or European immigrants. This book focuses on the transformation
of societies after the slave trade and slavery in a comparative
intercontinental perspective. It combines micro- and macro-historical
approaches and looks at the agency of slaves, missionaries,
abolitionists, state officials, seamen and soldiers.
