Review “Each of the chapters in Trafficking in Slavery’s Wake could stand as a solo article. However, the beauty of the collection is that the pieces say much more when grouped than they would as stand-alones. Patterns emerge. Continuities and discontinuities over time become apparent. Moreover, the contributors have clearly challenged each other to think in new ways.” – Walter Hawthorne, professor of African history at Michigan State University, author of From Africa to Brazil: Culture, Identity, and an Atlantic Slave Trade, 1600–1830
