In Response To: [Chat Live] Re: Burnside Interview ()
Question for Dr. Burnside about Spirits of Passage:
A great deal of your book focuses on England and the slave trade. In a recent quote you said that "The importance of the 17th century slave trade is that it reveals a series of choices that would have a profound consequence for Western Civilization." "....cultural groups who had never used slavery in their land of origin like the English and other Northern Europeans changed their lifestyles to rely on slave labor."
Was England more culpable and European and African nations less culpable?
Of all the countries involved in the slave trade, which nation shipped the most slaves and to where in the Americas.
