' ... a quite outstanding achievement ... a triumph of enterprise, industry and imaginative reconstruction ... This whole project is an example of historical cooperation at its finest ... This publication is a gold mine of information, most of which would have remained inaccessible to any single scholar ... The CD-Rom is easy to use ... the present study is as good as it gets: rooted in remorseless archival investigations, subjected to critical intellectual scrutiny and debate and rendered into manageable format by a publisher and its technical assistants who deserve the highest praise ... It is a scholarly work with massive implications for our understanding not simply of the Atlantic slave trade, but for our grasp of the complex cultural and social shaping of the Atlantic world. Would David Eltis and company please step forward for a curtain call - they deserve a standing ovation.' Times Higher Education SupplementReseña del editor:
