Reviews

"Over the past twenty years, there has been a movement among slavery scholars to expand their frameworks, stressing ever broader transnational comparisons and connections. This volume edited by William Mulligan and Maurice Bric continues to push the envelope. Their eclectic and thought provoking collection explores the international dimensions of the nineteenth-century antislavery movement and its legacy eleven essays from specialists based around the world that touch on places as far flung as Russia, the Congo, Sierra Leone, Haiti, the United States, the Ottoman Empire, Britain, Germany, Spain, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and France." - Justin Roberts, Dalhousie University, Canada
