Editorial Reviews


"[A] lucid and well-written evaluation." --The Historian

UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "An excellent introduction"--Professor Stanley L. Engerman, University of Rochester, and co-editor of A Historical Guide to World Slavery

"An excellent volume -- and not one easily managed. It is concise (on topics that are not easily presented in concise form), and well-writtten, and it has something new to say on all his chosen themes...Morgan has given shape and coherence to material that has expanded at an extraordinary rate over the past twenty years, and yet he never trivializes in the process of writing a compact study. It is a book which manages to be both a survey of the wider scholarly field, and an original argument in itself." --New West Indian Guide

"Will push us to think about frameworks beyond the Atlantic world or the Americas that might be useful for understanding slavery....Impressive." -- Journal of World History
