Many Middle Passages

Forced Migration and the Making of the Modern World

Reviews

“Extends the concept of the Middle Passage to encompass the expropriation of people across other maritime and inland routes. No previous book has highlighted the diversity and centrality of middle passages, voluntary and involuntary, to modern global history.”
— Kenneth Morgan, author of Slavery and the British Empire

“This volume extends the now well-established project of ‘Atlantic World Studies’ beyond its geographic and chronological frames to a genuinely global analysis of labour migration. It is a work of major importance that sparkles with new discoveries and insights.”
— Rick Halpern, co-editor of Empire and Others: British Encounters with Indigenous Peoples, 1600-1850
