Summary
This is the first book to explore national representations of slavery in an international comparative perspective. The essays in this collection evaluate the complex relationship between slavery and national identity by assessing the role of museums and other forms of commemoration. Contributions span a wide geographical range, covering Europe, North America, West and South Africa, the Indian Ocean and Asia. In using both chronological and geographical comparisons this work makes an innovative contribution to the growing literature on this dynamic area of research.--Back cover
