The Transatlantic Slave Trade: The History and Legacy of the System That Brought Slaves to the New World - Charles Rivers Editors - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Transatlantic Slave Trade:

A brief overview of the triangle trading system.

My favorite Charles Rivers Editors quote from the book:

"It is not in the power of the human imagination to picture a situation more dreadful or disgusting."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Did you realize there was more than just the Atlantic route?

Did you realize the complicity in Africa?

My review of The Transatlantic Slave Trade:

A brief overview of a complicated topic.

Covers the major points.

Slavery is truly one of the ugliest things humans have done to one another.
