Detailing the Anti-Slave Trade Act, which became a law in 1807 and made the capture and transport of slaves by British subjects illegal, this study examines the story of the slave trade in the British Empire and investigates the movement to bring it to an end. Subjects covered include the history of slavery, the brutality of the slave trade, resistance by slaves, importance of slave trade to the British economy, the roots of the anti-slave trade society, the strategies of the movement, the push for abolition, and the legacies of the slave trade.
