Summary
"Smallwood's story gives us a graphic experience of the slave trade from the vantage point of the slaves themselves. Saltwater Slavery details how African people were ultimately transformed into commodities in the Atlantic market. Throughout, Smallwood examines how the people at the center of her story - merchant capitalists, sailors, and slaves - understood the brutal process that bound them together. The result is both a remarkable transatlantic view of the culture of enslavement, and a painful, intimate vision of the violent daily business of the slave trade."--Jacket
