MEDIA REVIEWS

This group [the Red Legs], made up of the descendants of 50,000 Irish men and women who were sold into the white slave trade between 1652 and 1659, have been largely ignored, apart from in Sean O'Callaghan's wonderful To Hell or Barbados: The Ethnic Cleansing of Ireland

-- Manchan Magan * Irish Times *

Essential reading

* Irish Examiner *

A fascinating read

* The Sunday Tribune *

As the 17th century showed, being a slave under a Christian master was every bit as brutal an experience as it had been for those who lived and died in their countless and nameless millions under the yoke of Roman or Greek slave owners. "To Hell or Barbados" manages to put a few names and faces on those otherwise anonymous victims
