Reviews
"Bolstered by impressive primary and secondary research, Brycchan Carey argues compellingly that eighteenth-century abolitionists imitated contemporaneous naturalists to depict chattel slavery as an invasive species brought by Europeans to the Americas."--Vincent Carretta, author of Phillis Wheatley Peters: Biography of a Genius in Bondage

"Brycchan Carey's skillful re-examination of the primary literature of British slave trading and settlement in the Caribbean is persuasive and welcome. His forensic study forms a highly original environmental analysis both of humans and the natural world in the era of Atlantic slavery, exploration and settlement. In the process, it provides a totally new backdrop to the rise of late 18th century abolitionist sensibility."--James Walvin, University of York
