This book tackles a hitherto neglected topic by presenting Ireland as very much a part of the Black Atlantic world. It shows how slaves and sugar produced economic and political change in Eighteenth-century Ireland and discusses the role of Irish emigrants in slave societies in the Caribbean and North America.

Leserkritik

'Her [Rodgers] perseverance has produced an immensely readable volume, peppered with colourful anecdotes, that vividly describes not merely Ireland's relations with slavery, but the complexity of Irish society itself. It is a wonderful contribution to the commemoration of the bicentenary of the Abolition Act (1807), which will form an invaluable platform for future studies of Ireland and the black Atlantic.' - Daire Keogh, Irish Times

'...her [Rodgers] book reveals a depth of learning and a level of engagement with her subject that sets a new standard.' - Bruce Nelson, Field Day Review

'The great strength of the work is its integration of many overlapping themes in economic and cultural history.' Times Higher Education
