Studies in Global Slavery

Readers of this Blog are aware of its interest in slavery. The topic is both contemporary and very much in the news, as the tragedy of people trafficking is promoted by so much of the political and social disruption caused by all the violent and other change in the contemporary world. It is welcome to see that Brill are creating a new monograph series entitled Studies in Global Slavery. It usefully links the current interest in global history with concerns about slavery. Eugene Genovese subtitled his famous book about the U.S. South, Roll, Jordan, Roll, as: The World the Slaves Made. One starts to suspect that much of the world more generally was made by slaves. For details of the new series, see: http://www.brill.com/forthcoming-series-studies-global-slavery
