    Well written account of slavery, particularly in how the Netherlands was involved in the trade It includes the time of the emancipation proclamation, and the time after slavery, all in under 250 pages, which means it is a very good overview but with nothing really gone into in depth I would recommend for anyone looking at a summary of the topic.
