What You’re Holding: A Glimpse into a Pivotal Historical Movement

This isn’t just another historical account; it zeroes in on a narrative often overlooked: the aggressive efforts to put an end to the slave trade within Eastern Nigeria’s borders under British colonial power. Unlike other studies that might blend slavery and its abolition into one broad stroke, this piece separates them distinctly, focusing sharply on the latter.

Why should this matter to you? It’s simple: understanding these battles against inhumanity adds vital layers to our grasp of global social history. If you’re keen on comprehending how human rights victories are won—even amid staunch adversity—this is your read.

For Whom Does This Bell Toll?

Are you a student of history, an academic enthusiast, or simply someone who craves knowledge about humanity’s journey toward progress? Then you’re the audience for whom this book sings. Whether your interest lies in colonial narratives, African history post-abolition movements, or broader socio-economic transformations, there’s valuable insight here for you.

Adiele Afigbo stands as your guide—a Professor in History and International Relations at Ebonyi State University—he draws back the curtain on a period that begs not to be forgotten.

In essence, if you’re looking for a comprehensive yet focused exploration into an essential chapter of human rights history—one that has shaped not just a nation but also global perspectives—then let “The Abolition of the Slave Trade in Southeastern Nigeria” anchor itself onto your bookshelf.
