This week on Reviews in History two new resources for historians of slavery are reviewed, Voyages: The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database and Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice, 1490-2007. The latter date is of course significant in marking the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade, a bicentenary which prompted all manner of commemorations and remembrances.

There is also a constant supply of books on the subject, lengthy reviews of many of which can be found here (see the related reviews on the right hand side).
