Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A volume in the Problems in World History series, this book features a variety of secondary-source essays that are carefully edited for both content and length, making this single volume a convenient alternative to course packets or multiple monographs. Most often used as a supplementary text for upper-level courses, The Atlantic Slave Trade includes chapter introductions, essay introductions, and annotated bibliographies.

About the Author

Professor of History at Boston College, David Northrup earned his Ph.D. in African and European History from the University of California at Los Angeles. He earlier taught in Nigeria with the Peace Corps and at Tuskegee Institute. Research supported by the Fulbright-Hays Commission, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Social Science Research Council led to publications concerning pre-colonial Nigeria, the Congo (1870-1940), the Atlantic slave trade, and Asian, African, and Pacific islander indentured labor in the nineteenth century. A contributor to the OXFORD HISTORY OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE and BLACKS IN THE BRITISH EMPIRE, his latest book is AFRICA'S DISCOVERY OF EUROPE, 1450-1850. In 2004 and 2005 he served as president of the World History Association.
