Product Details


A remarkable effort to present the slave trade from a perspective very different from what we are used to . . . People like Anne Bailey make us uncomfortable, which is all to the good.–Daniel Lazare, The Nation

“Bailey is not afraid to ask difficult questions . . . [She] expands and troubles our understanding of the African diaspora. In this fine and accessible study of the slave trade, Bailey places African voices of this era at the center of the writing of history.”–Robert P. Byrd, Atlanta Journal Constitution

“[Bailey’s] research is important, her questions provocative, and her arguments sensible.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Bailey offers a noteworthy, carefully researched contribution to the study of the African slave trade . . . [and] brings unheard historical voices to the fore.”–Publishers Weekly

“Anne Bailey’s judicious, beautifully written account of this extended, appalling human experience is enormously enhanced by her great original contribution-the frequently moving and always thought-provoking memories and understandings of that tragedy amongst the descendants of those who participated as victims and perpetrators in West Africa itself.”–Richard Rathbone, professor emeritus, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
