  • There is no competing work on this subject.
  • The book draws on previously untouched documentary sources from the St Helena Archives, which provide an extraordinary level of detail about the island's role in anti-slavery.
  • The book merges documentary and archaeological evidence; these combine to tell a graphic story of this episode.
  • The sources are such that, unusually, the experiences of the Africans can be brought to the foreground.
