Editorial Reviews

"Her [Rodgers] perseverance has produced an immensely readable volume, peppered with colourful anecdotes, that vividly describes not merely Ireland's relations with slavery, but the complexity of Irish society itself. It is a wonderful contribution to the commemoration of the bicentenary of the Abolition Act (1807), which will form an invaluable platform for future studies of Ireland and the black Atlantic." -- Daire Keogh, Irish Times "...her [Rodgers] book reveals a depth of learning and a level of engagement with her subject that sets a new standard." -- Bruce Nelson, Field Day Review  "This book is a first-rate source of reference material. Besides Irish history, Rodgers provides excellent secondary material for other important historical areas, such as the Atlantic world and Caribbean, African, and US history. Undergraduate students in various disciplines and areas of historical research should find this material accessible as a good starting point for research papers. Libraries would be remiss in not having this well-written, engaging survey of such an important topic in world history... Essential." —CHOICE
