9780759103405: Slavery in the Twentieth Century: The Evolution of a Global Problem

In her new book, well-known Africanist Suzanne Miers places modern slavery in its historical context, tracing the phenomenal development of the international anti-slavery movement over the last hundred years. She demonstrates how the problems of eradication seem greater and more intractable today than they had ever been, showing how slavery has expanded to include newer forms from 1919 to 2000, some of them crueler than the chattel slavery so familiar to the public mind. Miers describes the targets of ongoing anti-slavery campaigns, including forced labor, forced prostitution, forced marriage, the exploitation of child labor and of migrant and contract labor. She centers her story on Great Britain's efforts to suppress the slave trade since the late eighteenth century, and draws upon her extensive work in Africa, where slavery has attracted the greatest humanitarian and international attention. This book is a valuable resource for those interested in world history, slavery, race and ethnic history, international human rights, and labor in the world economy.

About the Author:

Suzanne Miers is emerita professor of African history at Ohio University. She has also taught at the Universities of Wisconsin, London, and Malaya (Singapore). She is the author of Britain and the Ending of the Slave Trade and numerous articles. She co-edited with Igor Kopytoff, Slavery in Africa, with Martin Klein, Slavery and Colonial Rule in Africa, with Richard Roberts, The End of Slavery in Africa, and with Maria Jaschok, Women and Chinese Patriarchy.

Review:

Suzanne Miers writes with conviction―it would be hard to be impartial about slavery―but this book is a thoughtful, rigorous and scholarly survey of its subject. The scholarship is impeccable. As it is, this book will be the standard study of 20th century slavery and abolition. (Martin Klein, University of Toronto)

Building on her distinguished record of publications, Suzanne Miers carefully traces the development of the international antislavery movement during the last century. She assiduously chronicles the campaigns of the London-based Anti-Slavery Society (now AntiSlavery International) within changing systems of international power. (Seymour Drescher, (University of Pittsburgh) American Historical Review, June 2004)

Emerita Suzanne Miers of Ohio University has capped her careerlong interest in slavery with a masterpiece of historical research. (Anthony Q. Cheeseboro African Studies Review)

Her willingness to tackle this vast subject, to approach it from a truly global perspective, and to probe the complex forces that have shaped national and international responses to slavery and forced labor make for a work that will be the standard study of twentieth-century slavery and abolition for many years to come. Equally important, it will also be a major guide to the problems, questions, and issues that future research on slavery and forced labor in the contemporary world will need to explore and address. (The Historian)

A major guide to the problems, questions, an dissues that future research on slavery and forced labor in the contemporary world will need to explore and address. (The Historian)

Suzanne Miers is one of the leading authorities on the slave trade in Africa. This long-awaited book is based on a wide range of archival sources and is a balanced enquiry into the question of slavery not only in Africa but in Arabia and the Gulf. It is a fine work, comprehensive in scope, exact in detail, and illustrative of one of the great themes in human history. (Wm Roger Louis, University of Texas at Austin)

Slavery in the Twentieth Century is the bridge that links the extensive scholarship of historical slavery and the growing literature on contemporary slavery. This an invaluable service and the foundation for an expanded social and historical discipline of slavery studies, one that transcends the current focus on slavery in the anti-bellum American south. . . . As a textbook it was excellent, well-written, well-organized, and with sections that could stand alone as needed. (Journal Of Colonialism and Colonial History)
