Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The introduction frames the contributions on the importance of slavery and slave-ownership in the re-making of the British imperial world after abolition in 1833 by posing a number of key questions: What was the character of the British imperial state in the wake of 1833?; What happened to the merchants and planters who had been central to the West Indian economy and to the culture they had elaborated?; What new forms of unfree labour emerged across the British Empire?; How can academic historians engage with the museums, family and local historians who have made critical contributions to the understanding of slavery and its legacies?; What are the issues around history, reparations and restitution in the present?
