Review:

"An engaging journey to a mercifully vanished world." - "The Wall Street Journal"

"A tumultuous rollercoaster of a book ... Mr. Parker tells an extraordinary, neglected and shameful story with gusto.""--The Economist " "Gripping....A compendium of greed, horrible ingenuity, and wickedness, but also a fascinating and thoughtful social history." - William Dalrymple, author of "The Last Mughal" and "Nine Lives" "[A] minutely detailed portrait of one corner of Britain's constantly illuminated empire." - "Booklist "
"A rich, multifaceted account of the greed and slavery bolstering the rise of England's mercantile empire." - "Kirkus "
"Successful both as a scholarly introduction to the topic and as an entertaining narrative, this is recommended for readers of any kind of history." - "Library Journal"
"This is a rousing, fluently written narrative history, full of color, dash, and forceful personalities, but it's also a subtle social portrait of plantation life and governance." - "Publishers Weekly"

Review:

Gripping . . . a compendium of greed, horrible ingenuity and wickedness, but also a fascinating and thoughtful social history (William Dalrymple)

Alternately coruscating and scintillating, Parker's account blends an analysis of how slavery deformed Britain's early empire with narratives worthy of Conrad. (Tom Holland Guardian (Book of the Year))

An epic tale of human folly and endeavour, beautifully told and researched ( John le Carre)

A fascinating subject, and a book worthy of it...there isn't a dull page (Allan Massie Daily Telegraph)

Parker's epic story, from the 19th century to the present day, is awesome ( The Times)
