Slave Trade East Africa Coast Zanzibar Persian Gulf Abolition Britain
This text gives an overview of the Indian Ocean slave trade from Zanzibar and the East African coast to the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea. Drawing on British and French sources (primarily Livingstone, but also Berlioux and Ménon), parliamentary committee reports, & foreign office correspondence, Hutchinson describes the East African slave trade, and gives an overview of the campaigns against it in the UK. He compares these to the efforts to end the transatlantic slave trade, earlier in the century.
Contains a "map of East Africa, showing the recent discoveries" (6). According to the preface, profits from the sale of this work were to be donated to the Church Missionary Society's Special Fund for East Africa (Hutchinson was the secretary of the Society).
