Marcus Rediker is very uick to place the blame for the international slave trade on Europeans He discusses with brutal detail the devastation caused by the slave trade whether on the lives of the Africans the captains the sailors merchants the insurers What he merely touches upon is that the slave trade happened because of the complicity of the African tribal leaders and merchants If the Africans did not promote slavery for their own greed and or tribal revenge would the Black slave trade have existed to the degree in which it did I would love to read a book that focuses on what the Africans did to promote and sustain slaveryRediker recognizes the power of the abolitionist movement He also realizes that many white Europeans didn t care about the humanity of African slaves They did care about the harsh treatment of young white sailors Is it possible that the anti slavery movement in England would not have succeeded if the harsh daily life of a sailor on a slave ship was not part of the entire abolitionist propaganda storyRediker proposes that the slave ship was the first real capitalist enterprise This profit making corporation made the captain sailors traders and the slaves less than humanI found the fact that slave ships could stay in a port in Africa for months before the captain got enough slaves to make the trip worth the cargo During this time of gathering the cargo sailors would die of starvation and disease or escape the ship

Marcus Rediker ↠ 8 Summary Download Ú eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Marcus Rediker The Slave Ship A Human History Characters â 108 The missing link in the chain of American slavery For three centuries slave ships carted millions of people from the coasts of Africa across the Atlantic to the Americas Much is known of the slave trade and the American plantation system but little of the ships that made it all possibleIn The Slave Ship award winning historian Marcus Rediker draws on thirty years of research in maritime archives to create an unprecedented history of these. Like many other overwhelming catastrophes the Holocaust AIDS the persistence of poverty America s history as a slave owning nation is so hard to look at and examine deeply that we often shy away from any serious consideration of itBut this is a book that could overcome that reluctance in many because it paints a very human history of the British and American slave trade in Africa without resorting to polemic or a dry recitation of the factsMarcus Rediker a history professor at the University of Pittsburgh has decided to concentrate on the slave ship of the title but in doing so he really ends up exploring the five groups who were most involved in the ownership and operation of these ships slave merchants captains and their officers the seamen the African slave traffickers and the slaves themselvesDr Rediker makes a convincing case that the slave trade actually helped to create the very notion of white people and black people Before it emerged most Africans knew each other as members of different tribes and kinship groups with hundreds of separate languages customs and home territories In a similar way the ordinary seamen of the 17th 18th and 19th centuries were truly a motley crew made up largely of sailors from the British isles and then the American colonies but mixing in many other Europeans some blacks and some Asians Only when they were put in the position of having to serve as both sailors and jailers for a captured mass of Africans did they become a generalized group of white men and only then did the slaves become melded into blacksUsing his intensive research into British Parliamentary records ship logs written memoirs and other sources Dr Rediker tells one achingly human story after another to portray what happened to the captured Africans from the time they were seized until they arrived at their destinations how the sailors were mistreated and in turn mistreated the slaves how brutal the ships captains were and the economic and other motives that drove them to freuent use of whips thumbscrews and worse and how most slave merchants worked hard to distance themselves from the pain and agony of their trade by categorizing the slaves as numbers in a ledger or convincing themselves that they were actually introducing Africans to a better way of lifeThe story contains many surprises along the way One is just how hard and how often slaves worked at freeing themselves whether it was repeated insurrections on board to mass suicides Another was the way that Africans often thrown together from many different tribes and territories formed intensely close bonds on the ships and how the survivors would tell their children henceforth to call their shipmates aunt and uncle if they saw them in the future And a third is the impact that one drawing had on the abolition of the slave trade in the early 1800s the careful schematic of The Brooke showing the way it packed than 400 slaves below decksThis is a chilling story and one that ought to raise serious and ongoing uestions about how much America owes the people whose ancestors were brought to this nation in this way and whose free labor enriched millions of other people and created fortunes that persist to this dayIf you want to read one book that gives you a sense of the economics sociology anthropology and sheer human tragedy of the African slave trade you could do no better than this

It s a little hard to love a book whose main objective is to painstakingly detail the extent of human cruelty and terror in the slave trade especially when those details are revealingly extensive But this is a riveting historiographyWhat I suspected I d get going in was a good ethnography of the experience of the enslaved On this score it did as well as could be hoped What I hoped for was insight on the economics of the slave trade and the book came through there too But it s at its best in describing the fate of the common sailor whose situation might even be as wretched as any other aspect of the tradeI was warned that this would be a hard book to read And it is But not simply because of the lack of morality and humanity the misery and sadism What it really does is portray clearly how the system itself was by necessity one of terror Underlying everything is a general implication of capitalism or at least an unregulated capitalism Merchants both in England and on the coast of Africa sought profits Ship captains had to follow their own monetary incentives and enforce their own laws And the fates of the sailors and slaves were almost by rule grim or fatal as a result By the end of the book words such as terror and slaughterhouse and dungeon seem understatedA great book Although I may have to read something a little cheerful now
