Description:

In this widely praised history of an infamous institution, award-winning scholar Marcus Rediker shines a light into the darkest corners of the British and American slave ships of the eighteenth century. Drawing on thirty years of research in maritime archives, court records, diaries, and firsthand accounts, The Slave Shipis riveting and sobering in its revelations, reconstructing in chilling detail a world nearly lost to history: the floating dungeons at the forefront of the birth of African American culture.
