Slavery and the British Empire by Kenneth Morgan
Book DescriptionSlavery and the British Empire provides a clear overview of the entire history of British involvement with slavery and the slave trade, from the Cape Colony to the Caribbean. The book combines economic, social, political, cultural, and demographic history, with a particular focus on the Atlantic world and the plantations of North America and the West Indies from the mid-seventeenth century onwards. Kenneth Morgan analyses the distribution of slaves within the empire and how this changed over time; the world of merchants and planters; the organization and impact of the triangular slave trade; the work and culture of the enslaved; slave demography; health and family life; resistance and rebellions; the impact of the anti-slavery movement; and the abolition of the British slave trade in 1807 and of slavery itself in most of the British empire in 1834. As well as providing the ideal introduction to the history of British involvement in the slave trade, this book also shows just how deeply embedded slavery was in British domestic and imperial history - and just how long it took for British involvement in slavery to die, even after emancipation.

Fritz Reiner, Maestro and Martinet, Paperback (April 2010)
Personally enigmatic and often described as difficult to work with, Fritz Reiner was nevertheless renowned for the dynamic galvanization of the orchestras he led, a nearly unrivalled technical ability, and high professional standards. This book is a portrait of a man who was both his own worst enemy and one of the true titans of his profession.
