About this product
- DescriptionThe Dutch were late in abolishing the slave trade (1814) and slavery (1863). This volume raises and attempts to answer a number of questions regarding this tardiness: why did Holland, identified as a pioneer of modern capitalism, fail to generate a major anti-slavery movement? And why did it take the Dutch so long to follow the lead of apparently more 'modern' nations in abolishing the slave trade and slavery?
