Paru récemment Pathways from Slavery. British and Colonial Mobilizations in Global Perspective de Seymour Drescher chez Routledge, coll. "Variorum Collected Studies", 2018, 312 p. ISBN : 9781138634640 Prix : 115 £ (existe aussi en version électronique).

"Seymour Drescher’s regular, deeply-thought and carefully nuanced arguments have periodically reshaped how we think of the subject of the history of slavery itself. He has discussed the impact of economic and cultural factors on human behaviour and has shown that historical evidence does not lead to easy answers. He has changed the way in which we now look at abolitionism and has destroyed the linear explanation of economic decline. This books gathers together some of Drescher’s key essays in the field."



Seymour Drescher is Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh, USA.
