Reviews

'This excellent collection treats slavery as the truly global phenomenon that it was, and still is, and it looks at slavery within a broad range of forms of labor coercion. The editors have pulled together a team of outstanding authors, most of whom are established authorities on the subjects they discuss.' Martin Klein, University of Toronto
'With revisionary interpretations, this distinguished team of historians has produced an original, compelling and persuasive argument for the centrality of slavery in the shaping of modern history.' James Walvin, University of York
'This book is a thought-provoking intervention into the history and practices of slavery and other forms of coerced labor since the nineteenth century to the present, covering all parts of the world as well as major topics. It surely will spark a series of significant interdisciplinary debates, while future scholarship will rest on this thoughtful and expansive tome.' Toyin Falola, Kluge Chair in Countries and Cultures of the South, the Library of Congress
'This volume is brilliantly constructed with contributions from all parts of the world. It draws together the finest work on the history of forced labor between the Haitian Revolution and abolition. It is authoritatively researched, brilliantly presented, and clearly written - a welcome addition in every library.' Ira Berlin, University of Maryland
'This is a must-read for those interested in a comprehensive survey of nineteenth-century global slavery, its rise, decline, and aftermath. Not just an investigation of 'Second Slavery' in Africa, Asia and the Americas, this formidable volume examines a stunning range of coerced labor systems from a variety of rich perspectives, varying from the demographic to the cultural.' Philip Morgan, The Johns Hopkins University
