Have just read the first edition (1993) I recommend this to all interested in slavery/abolition, colonialism and victorian studies. Miora Ferguson's introduction is a fantastic piece of criticism and scholarship with some excellent references- many of which I intend to follow up. Mary Prince story provides a very interesting human view of slavery and a rare female view. Of note to me were the primary sources, especially the mane letters of the protagonists on both sides of debate and struggle.
