Charles Sumner provided the list of countries involved in these horrendous acts and was not afraid to list the guilty parties by name.
I enjoyed the stories about acts of heroism (Lord Exmouth, Admiral Van de Capellan and John Fox - to only name a few) of the great men involved in trying to liberate the tens of thousands of slaves. Mr. Sumner wrote in some detail how the slaves tried to free themselves.
The book is highly informative for any historian and anyone trying to find out about slavery of men or women of any color, religion, or country.
On the pages, the ink is somewhat faded (please bear in mind the book was published 1847) in some places or I would have given it a five star but you can still make out a great deal of what was written. A great read!
