Book Description

As a result of the efforts of the Abolition Committee in Great Britain in the half-decade between 1787 and 1792, slavery and the slave trade-previously accepted as necessary evils-were perceived as gross injustices and evils to be eradicated. This volume examines that first abolition movement in order to show how social movements produce and alter meanings, thus bringing about cultural change.
