Abstract:

For more than three centuries, slave ships carried millions of people from the coasts of Africa to the New World. Here, the author creates a detailed history of these vessels and the human drama acted out on their rolling decks. He restores the slave ship to its rightful place alongside the plantation as a formative institution of slavery, as a place where a profound and still haunting history of race, class, and modern capitalism was made.
