In a world where racism--structural and aggressive oppression of one race over another--is alive and well, a world in which the governments of the Atlantic Slave Trade countries try to deny the extent and effect of their pernicious roles in it, 'The Classic Slave Narratives' stands as crucial reading for the understanding of slavery. The first-hand accounts of the degradation and horror of the institution will alarm even those who know the story, and will certainly jolt those who have avoided the subject into painful reality. The volume should be required reading in the schools of the U.S., U.K., France, Spain, Portugal, etc.
