    eBook James Walvin ò A Short History of Slavery PDF ´ A Short eBook ò short epub, history epub, slavery pdf, A Short mobile, History of mobile, Short History of epub, A Short History of Slavery ePUBA very boring and inconseuential book There was no heart to it which is something difficult to imagine considering the subject matter at hand Walvin becomes his own victim stating early on that 'What follows is not meant to diminish that suffering by reducing it to simple statistics which can mask the human misery they represent' when this is exactly the type of aura he is ultimately presenting There's no depth although I suppose this can be forgiven given the 'short' nature of the book it's bland and it's ju

    eBook James Walvin ò A Short History of Slavery PDF ´ A Short eBook ò short epub, history epub, slavery pdf, A Short mobile, History of mobile, Short History of epub, A Short History of Slavery ePUBThis book is exactly what it says on the cover a short history of slavery The focus is mainly on the AtlanticBritish slave trade although there are a few short chapters on slavery in other periods I really wanted to know about slavery as I think Dutch education doesn't provide us with enough study material on the subject and this was a good place to start The first half of the book was well written the second half dragged out a bit and was denser I appreciated the fact that Walvin used contemporary sources in each chapter it made me feel of a connection to the subject as opposed to this being a very cold scientific book which some people feel it is I think this has the right balance of humanity and science

    eBook James Walvin ò A Short History of Slavery PDF ´ A Short eBook ò short epub, history epub, slavery pdf, A Short mobile, History of mobile, Short History of epub, A Short History of Slavery ePUBA well constructed and straightforward book which takes an overview of slavery mostly focusing on the Atlantic slave trade but also discussing slavery prior to the beginning of that trade and looking at some of the forms it has taken since that trade ended It also mentions but does not discuss or present any evidence about slavery in Islamic countries Each chapter gives a historical description of the period or theme and then presents a series of primary sources contemporary
