Yet slavery, which brought so much diverse prosperity to Britain was ended, in British possessions, in a relatively brief period. In the space of fifty years first the slave trade and then slavery itself was abolished by Parliament. This book seeks to explore that process by studying abolition and emancipation as a species of popular politics. Moreover one crucial element in the complex political formula which created black freedom was black socity itself - in Britain and the West Indies.

Like the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade, the Anti-Slavery Society was a.England, Slaves and Freedom by James Walvin (1987).

Like the Society for the Abolition of the Slave Trade, the Anti-Slavery Society was a national organisation with its own network of local and regional auxiliaries. And like earlier organisations, its leaders endorsed mass petitioning. Despite Britain's withdrawal from the Atlantic slave trade, the traffic still flourished; in fact, since 1807 it had steadily grown (or so it seemed to contemporaries). Slavery also still flourished, most notably in the United States. Here was a fresh challenge. Making the Black Atlantic: Britain and the African Diaspora by James Walvin (2000).

Charlotte Hodgman spoke to James Walvin about nine places related to the campaign to end a cruel but highly profitable trade in humans. British involvement in the transatlantic slave trade was, until very recently, a subject often brushed under the carpet. The idea of thousands of African slaves passing through British ports in abject conditions remains unpalatable to most but, according to James Walvin, professor emeritus of history at the University of York, the fact remains that the Caribbean and north African slave trade of the 18th century was effectively a British creation

This article discusses various aspects of slavery and the slave trade of the Dutch East India Company in the Indian Ocean world: the markets of supply and demand or geographic origins and destinations of slaves; the routes to slavery or the diverse means of recruitment of forced labor.

THE TRANSATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE, SLAVERY AND ABOLITION SOURCES AT THE BRITISH LIBRARY BRIEFING The British transatlantic slave trade began in the second half of the 16th century and reached its peak in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was abolished by Act of Parliament in March 1807. Slavery in the British empire was abolished, in theory, in 1834, but a period of enforced apprenticeship followed. Enslaved people in the Caribbean finally became free in 1838. The British Library holds resources relevant to the study of the slave trade and slavery in most areas of its collections.

Slavery in Great Britain existed and was recognised from before the Roman occupation until the 12th century, when chattel slavery disappeared, at least for a time, after the Norman Conquest. Former slaves merged into the larger body of serfs in Britain and no longer were recognized separately in law or custom.
