Summary
"When eighteenth century antislavery writers attacked the slave trade as "barbaric traffic"--A practice that would corrupt the mien and manners of Anglo-American culture to its core - they expressed a moral uncertainty about the nature of commercial capitalism. A major work of cultural criticism, Barbaric Traffic constitutes a rethinking of the fundamental agenda of antislavery writing from pre-revolutionary America to the end of the British and America slave trades in 1808. Studying the rhetoric of various antislavery genres - from pamphlets, poetry, and novels to slave narratives and the literature of disease - Gould exposes the close relation between antislavery writings and commercial capitalism. A challenge to the premise that objections to the slave trade were rooted in modern laissez-faire capitalism, his work revises - and expands - our understanding of anti-slavery literature as a form of cultural criticism in its own right."--Jacket
