    The Royal Navy and the Slavers, first published in 1969, examines not only the Royal Navy’s 60-year campaign to eradicate slavery, but also the British Government’s diplomatic pressure on other countries to discontinue the slave trade. It analyses Captain’s logs and despatches, and their evidence at trials of the men they captured, as well as looking at the messages from British ambassadors and consuls around the world.
