    Walvin, James. Penguin Books. 2007

    From the publisher's page: "As we approach the bicentenary of the abolition of the Atlantic trade, Walvin has selected the historical texts that recreate the mindset that made such a savage institution possible - morally acceptable even. Setting these historical documents against Walvin's own incisive historical narrative, the two layers of this extraordinary, definitive account of the Atlantic slave trade enable us to understand the rise and fall of one of the most shameful chapters in British history, the repercussions of which the modern world is still living with."

    Primer for White Folks

    Moon,Bucklin, Editor. Doubleday, Doran &Co., Inc. Garden City, New York. 1945.

    "Primer For White Folks was conceived, not as a book for the expert in race relations, but rather for the average American who is disturbed by the rising racial tension which he feels around him and by the paradox of white and Negro relationships in a democracy waging a war of liberation and equally. In so far as space permits, it is an attempt to present a general picture of the Negro-- his backgrounds, his relationship with whites, his everyday denial of first- class citizenship, and what he really wants in American life." From the Preface.
