These pages have selected material on the slave trade and African history. They relate to my first novel "Ama, A Story of the Atlantic Slave Trade" and to the sequel "Brave Music of a Distant Drum"
Sections are entitled:
Middle Passage and the Love of Liberty
Attitudes to Slavery
For each section, I have listed the principal sources I used , plus some I found after the writing. I have done my best to arrange each list by topic. More general matter appears on this page. Subject to the limitations of copyright I have included some relevant extracts of text.
