This survey synthesizes the economic, social, cultural and political history of the Atlantic slave trade. It details the current scholarly knowledge of forced African migration and compares this knowledge to popular beliefs. The book examines the 400 years of the Atlantic slave trade, covering the West and East African experiences and the American colonies and republics that obtained slaves from Africa, outlining common features and local variations. It discusses the slave trade's economics, politics, demographic impact, and cultural implications in Africa and America, places the slave trade in the context of world trade, and examines its role in the growing relationship between Asia, Africa, Europe and America.
