Letters from the voyages of the slave ship Pearl( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The barbarity of the enforced migration of Africans to the Caribbean and the realities of the transatlantic slave trade are fully revealed in Letters from the Voyages of the Slave Ship PEARL. The nonchalant accounts of the awful details of suffering and death are brought into sharp relief by the editors who reconstruct four voyages of the PEARL between 1785 and 1793. The ship was owned by Bristol businessman James Rogers, and the letters in this collection are but a small sample of the 15 boxes of correspondence comprising the Rogers papers held at The National Archives at Kew in the United Kingdom. Caribbean scholars who can scarcely access the original records are provided with a closer understanding of the complexities of slave trading. Written from several perspectives - the ship's doctor, the captains, slave traders on the African coast and Caribbean merchants - this assemblage offers a unique glimpse into the transatlantic slave trade. The letters, however, do not cover the perspective of the enslaved - muted and reduced to cargo, mentioned and recorded by number only. The book is divided into four parts for each of the selected voyages and each part is introduced with a short synopsis, each letter elucidated with explanatory notes. The work is enhanced by the inclusion of maps, tables and figures. Letters from the Voyages of the Slave Ship PEARL contextualises the continuing conversation of a painful past and is both enlightening and informative for the scholar, activist, and advocate alike."--Page 4 of cover
Atlantic childhoods in global contexts( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlantic Childhoods in Global Contexts" explores childhood and youth in the Global South. The term childhood often conjures images of innocence, vulnerability and the need for protection, but this book suggests that, in colonial contexts, these images need to be re-examined. In fact, as the articles in this collection demonstrate, deviance, culpability, and a presumed autonomy were the more popular notions of childhood in the colonial context. These notions were held by the various actors in the colonial drama, not only colonial officials but interestingly enough often by the colonized people themselves. Furthermore, traditional notions of childhood as a period of total dependency are challenged in this collection, as the various authors explore the ways in which children were pro-active agents who shaped notions of childhood and therefore our understanding of the history of childhood. This collection provides in-depth analysis and offers new perspectives on how children were imagined and constructed (both legally and informally) in the colonial context. The contributions cover a broad geographic range that spans the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, and India
