[Reviews] Kudos for the review of Spirits of Passage

Hi David:

Like you I am up late. I read your review twice and will probably read it many more times. Each read magnified your years of scholarly research on American slavery and unfortunately magnified how much I have to learn. Although I often refer to Dr. Burnside's book in my own research, I realized how much I missed in reading Spirits of Passage. Most compelling were your comments on the motivation/psychology and decision of European and African nations "to get into the slave business." Indeed, it is a theme that resonates throughout Spirits of Passage. In the end everyone, every nation who profited from the slave trade was culpable.

Thanks so much for spending the time to share your insight with the Afrigeneas family. Your review will certainly prepare us for the interview with Dr. Burnside on Tuesday.

My best,

K Wyer Lane
