Barbaric Traffic by Philip Gould

Book Description

Studying the rhetoric of various antislavery genres - from pamphlets, poetry and novels to slave narratives and the literature of disease - Gould exposes the close relation between antislavery writings and commercial capitalism. By distinguishing between good commerce, or the importing of commodities that refined manners, and bad commerce, like the slave trade, the literature offered both a critique and an outline of acceptable forms of commercial capitalism. A challenge to the premise that objections to the slave trade were rooted in modern laissez-faire capitalism, Gould's work revises - and expands - our understanding of antislavery literature as a form of cultural criticism in its own right.
