The Slave Ship: A Human History

by Marcus Rediker Author

From professor of Atlantic History Marcus Rediker, this book shines light on one of the darkest series of events in modern history: the Transatlantic Slave Trade, namely the Middle Passage on the harrowing two months on British and American slave ships. Through maritime archives, diaries, court records, and other primary sources, this book is a revelation to some of the realities of this period of time. These chilling details will also serve as a way to construct an idea of the histories to come — exploring the forgotten histories that these now enslaved African people had lost to inhumane society and culture, and exploring the seafaring dungeons that became a departure point of African American culture.
