Notes

First edition of this history of Jamaica from an abolitionist perspective, detailing the discovery of Jamaica, the cruelty of the colonisers to the natives, the introduction of slavery, and the effects of its abolition. The author argues that the ending of slavery in Jamaica in 1838 was orderly and has seen a marked moral improvement in the former slaves.
