Titel: The Dutch Atlantic
Sub titel: Slavery, Abolition and Emancipation
The Dutch Atlantic investigates the Dutch involvement in the transatlantic slave trade and assesses the historical consequences of this for contemporary European society. The authors uncover the connections between the slave trade and economic, social and cultural factors, as well as its impact on nation-state formation in the Netherlands and across Europe. They also examine how European countries created and expanded laws that perpetuated colonisation. Addressing key themes such as the incorporation of former slaves into post-slavery states and the legacy of slavery in the Netherlands, this is an essential text for students of European history and postcolonial studies.
