Reviews

"Rooted in research in primary materials, the book offers a wealth of new evidence and insight."--David Richardson, coauthor of Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade--David Richardson
"A comprehensive account of U.S. involvement in the transatlantic slave trade to Cuba and Brazil. Conceptually brilliant and deeply researched, Marques's work explains how Americans were vital actors in this horrific commerce, as merchants, captains, sailors, shipbuilders, and the everyday consumers of slave-grown coffee and sugar."--Edward B. Rugemer, author of The Problem of Emancipation: The Caribbean Roots of the American Civil War --Edward B. Rugemer
"Based on extensive research utilizing numerous primary sources, Marques's book focuses on the importance of U.S. involvement with the slave trades of other American areas. This is a significant original contribution to the examination of the nineteenth-century Atlantic slave trade and its impacts on U.S. political and economic developments."--Stanley L. Engerman, John H. Munro Professor of Economics and Professor of History, University of Rochester--Stanley L. Engerman
