Drawing on new quantitative and qualitative evidence, this study reexamines the rise, transformation, and slow demise of slavery and the slave trade in the Atlantic world. The twelve essays here reveal the legacies and consequences of abolition and chronicle the first formative global human rights movement. They also cast new light on the origins and development of the African diaspora created by the transatlantic slave trade. Engagingly written and attuned to twenty-first century as well as historical problems and debates, this book will appeal to specialists interested in cultural, economic, and political analysis of the slave trade as well as to nonspecialists seeking to understand anew how transatlantic slavery forever changed Europe, the Americas, and Africa. Philip Misevich is assistant professor of history at St. John's University, and Kristin Mann is professor of history at Emory University.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The collection as a whole rises to the laudatory occasion that it commemorates. HISPANIC AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW A welcome addition to Atlantic scholarship. It is thought provoking, yet still easy to read...should appeal to undergraduates, graduate studies, and specialist alike. CAHIERS D'ETUDES AFRICAINES It is always exciting to get to read a new book, and if that study introduces views and information not hitherto discussed or analyzed, the pleasure is even greater. In just such a book, Philip Misevich and Kristin Mann have edited a series of articles dedicated to David Eltis, who devoted many years to the study of slavery. H-NET
