Monumental, yet concisely written work that illustrates the scope of transatlantic slave trade, that meant the forced migration of 11-12 million Black Africans between 1501 and 1867. The authors of Atlas of the Transatlantic Slave Trade show which nations participated in the slave trade, where the slaves came from, the ships used, where they landed, and the experience of the voyages based on literary evidence. Read this one instead of Hugh Thomas’ dense work if you want a more summarized account.
