Books Info:

Discourses of Slavery and Abolition free pdf Discourses of Slavery and Abolition brings together for the first time the most important strands of current thinking on the relationship between slavery and categories of writing, oratory, and visual culture in the 'long' eighteenth century. Including original work by established experts alongside essays by new scholars in the field, the book begins by examining writing about slavery and race by both philosophers and by authors such as Aphra Behn. It considers self-representation in the works of Ignatius Sancho, Olaudah Equiano, James Williams and Mary Prince. The final section reads literary and cultural texts associated with the abolition movements of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, moving beyond traditional accounts of the documents of that movement to show the importance of religious writing, children's literature and the relationship between art and abolition. Together, the essays included in this book offer significant new insights into the culture of slavery and abolition and form essential reading for scholars and students in the field.
