Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book appeal to readers of history - both nonfiction and historical fiction. The readers interested in civil/human rights issues. It is great for those who enjoy tales of sea-dogs, pirates and adventure on the high seas e.g. fans of the novels of Patrick O Brian. It reviews in pb round-ups in national newspapers. A gripping, meticulously researched and artfully written account of the life, exploits and character of notorious sea-dog John Hawkyns, England s first slave trader. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly has called The Queen s Slave Trader a tour de force. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries England became the greatest slave trading nation in the world, her merchants and businessmen grew fat, and her ports and cities boomed, on the suffering of millions of Africans captives. And, the pattern her slave traders followed had been pioneered in the sixteenth century by John Hawkyns, England s first, and Queen Elizabeth s personal, slave trader. The Queen s Slave Trader by Nick Hazlewood tells the story of England s first incursions into the trade she would come to dominate, the way they were used to attack the Portuguese and Spanish super-powers, and the involvement for the first, but not the last, time of the English crown in the shameful traffic of human beings. This is a story of survival, revenge, and the destruction of a race. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780060935696
