|Title:||The role of slavery in the industrial revolution|
|Abstract:||Simon Schaffer explains the Atlantic system, which involved cotton, sugar and slaves. The motive for linking Liverpool (the great slave city) with Manchester (the great cotton city) with a railway, arose out of slavery. The forcible export of Black Africans and its dreadful history is an indispensable part of the story of the British industrial revolution.|
