If you want to lighten the burden of guilt for the great-great granchildren of ex-slaveowners, give them this book. The author has an "oh,hum" approach, as if to say, the Englishmen had absolutely no choice in the matter. Due to their personal perceptions, economic hardships, and need for labor hands, it was only obvious to employ African as slaves, so let's not be too harsh on them. Give me a break!!!! I would not recommend this book for anyone who is set on learning about the truth.
