In White Slavery in the Barbary States captivity expert Charles Sumner takes a detailed look at the white slave markets which flourished on the Barbary Coast of North Africa, which included the Ottoman provinces of Algeria, Tunisia and Tripolitania and the independent sultanate of Morocco, between the 16th and middle of the 18th century.

About the Author

Charles Sumner (1811-1874) was a senator for Massachusetts who was one of the leaders of the abolitionist movement in pre-Civil War America. A radical reconstructionist, Sumner actively sought the destruction of racial segregation and even sought to remove the word "white" from American naturalization laws-which made his work on white slavery in the Barbary states even more remarkable and, later on, his most suppressed work.
