Published to coincide with the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade, this important volume of international significance draws together contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field of slavery studies. Liverpool and Transatlantic Slavery sets Liverpool in the wider context of transatlantic slavery and addresses issues in the scholarship of the area, including African agency and trade experience. Individual essays place emphasis on the human characteristics and impacts of transatlantic slavery, opening up new areas of debate on Liverpool's participation in the trade and helping to frame the research agenda for the future.
