Paperback: 334 pages
Publisher: Nation of Islam; 2 edition (October 16, 1991)
A very emotionless, clear and decisive portrayal of the facts regarding the Jewish role in the African slave trade. I've always believed that it was the arabs and muslims who were largely responsible for the slave trade but this book shows in astonishing and meticulous DETAIL FROM JEWISH SOURCES that the jews had a severely disproportionate role in the African Slave Trade. It certainly makes you wonder about the origin of the NAACP and the jewish role in the civil rights movement. I would recommend this to anyone who can stomach a non-stop barrage of factual references without any "victim" bias.

There are many books purporting to be the "History of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Writing and references are sloppy, claims are far fetched and even invented. Not this book. I first read this book after loaning it from my public library. I antiscipated yet another hysterical diatribe against whites or polemic against African chieftans. Anyone seeking racists stereotypes should look elsewhere. This book is remarkably well researched. The quotes are all from Jewish sources and no others are included because of the risk of anti-semitic bias. The book basically consists of archival records of business transactions, personal correspondance and public records of the Shephadic ( North African, Southern European and Dutch Jews) kidnapping, selling and loaning of African slaves. Its descibes the Jews creation of the trans-Atlantic slave trade which began with Christopher Colombus's arrival in the "New World" and his sending Native American Indians back to Spain. Its describes how Jewish wealth already acquired from their slave trading during the Middle Ages and Ottoman Empire period in Europe and the Middle East enabled the Jews to have the financial resources and seafaring merchantile experiences to successfully sell slaves and then sell the produce of slave labor consisting of sugar , tobacco and rum back to the Europeans. The book describes the struggles by various European monarchs to ban the consumption of excessive amounts for sugar, tobacco and rum which was leading to social decline in people that had become addicted to sugar and tobacco. A problem that is still the scourge of western society.Read more ›
This book is a riveting expose of the mythical and misconceived "familial" relationship between blacks and Jews. The Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam formulates a solid thesis based on authoritative Jewish sources to document the disproportionate involvement of Jews in the African slave trade.
The editors communicate their precise report in an emotionless and unbiased manner. There is not a hint of anger or so-called "rhetoric" in this work. Every claim is supported by citations "from the most respected of the Jewish authorities and whose works appear in established historical journals or are published by authoritative Jewish publishing houses."
This book redefines how students of history and political science should view slavery. Having read this book, the reviewer sees further the pointlessness of feeding into the useful idiocy machine.
It is unfortunate that the contents this book cannot be discussed, at least on the university level, with which the reviewer is well-acquainted, to help re-shape how slavery is interepreted in the United States. We remain in ignorance to what the eminent Jewish scholars already know.
I commend the courage and the bravery of the editors of this work. Though, I do not support the theological-political ideology of the Nation of Islam, I deem the work and research of this report to be accurate and true.
No other group, to my knowledge, with the exception of an article "Who Brought the Slaves to America?" written by a Walter White, Jr. published in 1968, has done Americans a service in exposing the predominant Jewish role in the African slave trade.
This is excellent research and I thank god for the Nation of Islam. So many tools will criticize this work simply because it was researched by black Muslims, but it is a must read to get a clear picture on what happen to Africans in the black holocaust. This book has over a thousand footnotes and references. If you don't except what this book is saying, you can simply close it and go and research all the references this book has provided. This is what I did, and everything that this book has said checked out to be true. How anyone can have a negative review of this work simply does not want to hear the truth. I am so tired of every time so one criticizes what a Jew has done they are anti Semitic or something bad. But the truth is the truth and this book has plenty of it.
What's amazing to me is no other cultural, racial or ethnic group has coined a tag line to prevent ANYONE from saying ANYTHING negative EVER about their group. We've been conditioned to hear the phrase "anti-semitic" and recoil in disgust equating it with images of emaciated corpses in mass graves. I imagine that at some point in history, there is something less that positive to say about ANY group on earth, so why do we allow ourselves to be brow beaten into rejecting anything negative about Jewish people? Lets let the facts speak for themselves. Let the individual read the information and decide if it has anything useful to offer. I found the content informative and compelling and, believe it or not, I don't intend to use it to oppress or hurt anyone.
