That Greece might still be free; the Philhellenes in the War of Independence by William St. Clair ( Book )

"When in 1821 the Greeks rose in violent revolution against the rule of the Ottoman Turks, waves of sympathy spread across Western Europe and the United States. More than a thousand volunteers set out to fight for the cause. William St Clair meticulously researched and highly readable account of their aspirations and experiences was hailed as definitive when it was first published. Long out of print, it remains the standard account of the Philhellenic movement and essential reading for any students of the Greek War of Independence, Byron, and European Romanticism. This completely revised edition includes a new introduction by Roderick Beaton, an updated bibliography and many new illustrations"--Publisher's description

The grand slave emporium : Cape Coast Castle and the British slave trade by William St. Clair ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For nearly one hundred and fifty years before abolition in 1807, Cape Coast Castle on the African 'Gold Coast' was, in the words of one of its British governors, the grand emporium of the British slave trade. From this handsome building perched on the shore of the South Atlantic Ocean, men, women and children born in Africa were sold as slaves and carried on British slave ships to the West Indies, to North and South America, and to destinations elsewhere. Here the ancestors of millions of people living today in Britain, the United States and many other countries passed through the 'door of no return'." "In a most original and remarkable book, by telling the story of the castle and of some of the people who lived, worked or were imprisoned within its walls. William St. Clair is able to illuminate a vast panorama of modern history, which in its entirety is hard to comprehend." "He draws on an immense archive of records, hitherto scarcely explored - agreements with local African leaders, correspondence between colleagues in the Africa Service, letters from home, receipts for the buying and selling of slaves, and scribbled notes sent between the Castle and the slave ships."--BOOK JACKET
