Robert B. EdgertonNational ReviewHugh Thomas has given us the most comprehensive account of the Atlantic Slave Trade ever written.
Gregory KaneBaltimore SunThe Slave Trade is more than just a history of the transatlantic peddling of human flesh. It is the story, in microcosm, of four continents: Europe, Africa, North America, and South America. Thomas weaves a tale of merchants and slaves; of diplomats and clergymen; of philosophers, statesmen, abolitionists, and rulers that readers will find surprisingly engaging.
John ThorntonThe New York Times Book ReviewWell researched...engaging...a fine narrative history.
Hardy GreenBusiness WeekMasterly....With its uncompromising show of erudition drawn from a wealth of original and secondary sources, The Slave Trade is an indispensable account of a repugnant institution.
Barbara StantonDetroit Free PressThomas has taken a sprawling subject and turned it into a disciplined, compelling narrative.
