W. E. B. Du Bois

The Suppression of the African Slave Trade to America (1638–1870)

This book is the PhD dissertation of W. E. B Du Bois, the famous African-American author of 20th century. Based upon the study of various sources like, national, State, and colonial statutes, Congressional documents, reports of societies, personal narratives, etc. he has done a meticulous study of the African-American Slave Trade to USA from 1638–1870. In his view, the question of the suppression of the slave-trade is so intimately connected with the questions as to its rise, the system of American slavery, and the whole colonial policy of the eighteenth century, that it is difficult to isolate it. Yet, Du Bois has done an excellent research into the background of America's most turbulent and often neglected past. Read on!
