This exposé of American and Caribbean slave societies was published in 1823, the same year that the Anti-Slavery Society began campaigning for the abolition of slavery in the British colonies. Sources include the Royal Gazette of Jamaica, and eye-witnesses including the Rev. Thomas Cooper, James Stephen and Dr John Williamson. It argues that despite differences in management and treatment of slaves, the system was: “the same revolting institution, whether it be administered by Spaniards or Portuguese, Frenchmen or Dutchmen, Englishmen or Americans” (43-44).
Unnamed author, attributed to the abolitionist Zachary Macaulay in the Friends House Library catalogue. Another edition was published the same year, printed by Richard Taylor.
