The Correspondence of Stephen Fuller, 1788-1795, offers a much-needed accounting of how slavery supporters in Britain managed to preserve the slave trade in Jamaica during the last two decades of the 18th century.
- Represents the best single source on the efforts in Britain to prevent the abolition of the slave trade in Jamaica in the late 18th century
- Offers background context for Fuller’s letters and provides new information about the effectiveness of the West India interest in Britain’s houses of parliament
- Provides the fullest accounting of the campaign orchestrated by Jamaica and other Caribbean islands to turn back the abolitionist attack on the slave trade and plantation regime
- Features a wealth of information about the slave trade, the conditions in which Jamaican slaves lived and worked, the racial attitudes of planters and their overseas representatives
- Reveals the efforts made by Fuller to appease the abolition movement through modest steps to deflect criticisms of the planter regime
