This study is the first to consider the consequences of Britain's abolition of the Atlantic slave trade for British imperial expansion and the world economy. It argues that the British led the way in ending that trade just when it was beginning to be important for the world economy, when there was a great need for labour around the world, and shows that Britain's control of the slave trade and great reliance on slave labour had played a major role in its empire's rise to world economic dominance. Contesting the view that Britain stood to benefit from the abolition of the slave trade, the author shows that British economic expansion was hindered greatly as a result.

Review:

'for light on slavery and the slave-trade - the latest, strongest light - it is necessary to turn to the formidable treatise by David Eltis ... The analysis, supported at every step by graphs, citations, tables and whatever else is required is rigorously economic. ELtis never allows his readers to lose sight of the fact that slavery was above all an economic institution.' Times Literary Supplement

'Eltis has good answers, but not crude or simplistic ones, that challenge a good many traditional assumptions that historians and economists have held about the place of the slave trade in the world economy. His book will be a landmark for a very long time.' David Brion Davis; Yale University

'extensive study ... David Eltis has written an excellent book that will be a landmark for some time to come.' P.C. Emmer, Centre for the History of European Expansion, Leiden, International Journal of Maritime History

Book Description Oxford University Press, USA. Hardcover. Condition: New. 434 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 1.3in.This watershed study is the first to consider in concrete terms the consequences of Britains abolition of the Atlantic slave trade. Why did Britain pull out of the slave trade just when it was becoming important for the world economy and the demand for labor around the world was high Caught between the incentives offered by the world economy for continuing trade at full tilt and the ideological and political pressures from its domestic abolitionist movement, Britain chose to withdraw, believing, in part, that freed slaves would work for low pay which in turn would lead to greater and cheaper products. In a provocative new thesis, historian David Eltis here contends that this move did not bolster the British economy; rather, it vastly hindered economic expansion as the empires control of the slave trade and its great reliance on slave labor had played a major role in its rise to world economic dominance. Thus, for sixty years after Britain pulled out, the slave economies of Africa and the Americas flourished and these powers became the dominant exporters in many markets formerly controlled by Britain. Addressing still-volatile issues arising from the clash between economic and ideological goals, this global study illustrates how British abolitionism changed the tide of economic and human history on three continents.
