Odious commerce : Britain, Spain, and the abolition of the Cuban slave trade by David R Murray( Book )

21 editions published between 1980 and 2002 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Atlantic slave trade brought to Cuba the African slaves who created the dramatic transformation of the island from a relative backwater of Spain's colonial empire in the mid-eighteenth century to the world's richest plantation colony one hundred years later. Britain played a vital role in this transformation. British slave traders were the chief suppliers of Cuba's slaves in the eighteenth century; in the nineteenth century Britain became the greatest threat to Cuba's prosperity when she attempted to make Spain follow her example and abolish the slave trade. Dr Murray's study, based on a thorough examination of British and Spanish records, reveals how important British influence was on the course of Cuban history

E.H. Weber on the tactile senses by Ernst Heinrich Weber( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reader will find here much more than those topics for which Weber is best known - the two-point threshold, experiments on weight discrimination and a statement of what is now called Weber's Law. Weber also made interesting remarks on many aspects of sensory psychology - on left-right asymmetry in sensitivity, on visual resolution, the binocular combination of colours, the moon illusion, on summation, inhibition and adaptation in sensory systems, on the difference between simultaneous and successive presentations, on selective attention, the externalisation of sensations and the difference between sensation and perception. As a scientist, Weber was working in the new area of experimental psychology; as a philosopher, he bridged the gap between philosophy and experiment. His work remains of interest to historians of science, to philosophers and to sensory psychologists
