Fifty Years Later: Antislavery, Capitalism and Modernity in the Dutch Orbit

Gert Oostindie
KITLV Press, 1995 - 272 pagina's
The Dutch slave trade, slavery and abolitionism have long remained unduly neglected issues in the burgeoning international debate on capitalism, modernity, and antislavery. Fifty Years Later now offers a thorough and wide-ranging discussion of antislavery in the Netherlands and in the Dutch colonial world, and also provides a fresh contribution to the ongoing debate on the relationship between abolitionism and economic, political and cultural modernization in the Western world at large.

The contributors to this volume are Seymour Drescher, Pieter C. Emmer, Stanley L. Engerman, Edwin Horlings, Gerrit J. Knaap, Maarten Kuitenbrouwer, Gert Oostindie, Robert Ross, Angelie Sens, and Alex van Stipriaan.
