Really interesting book. Read it to coincide with 200th anniversary of the British Abolition of the slave trade. It's a very readable book, not in the least bit stale, with a broad focus. It examines the role of Africans in the struggle and the part they played (whether enslaved or not), the role of the church, the role of woman, the triumphs and the failures.
