Notes:
'A World Transformed' explores how slavery thrived at the heart of the entire Western world for more than three centuries. Arguing that slavery can only be fully understood by stepping back from traditional national histories, this book collects the scattered accounts of the most recent scholarship into a comprehensive history of slavery and its shaping of the world we know. Celebrated historian James Walvin tells a global story that covers everything from the capitalist economy, labour, and the environment, to social culture and ideas of family, beauty and taste. The book underscores just how thoroughly slavery is responsible for the making of the modern world.
