DescriptionIn his vastly influential study of the Atlantic slave trade, Eric Williams revealed the deep connections between capitalism and racism for the first time. Uncovering slavery's role at the heart of the Industrial Revolution in Britain, Williams made the case that racism arose as a means of rationalizing an exploitative economic programme. Most significantly, he showed that the British slave trade was only abolished when it ceased to become financially viable, exploding the myth of emancipation as a mark of Britain's moral progress.
