Summary
This first comprehensive history of the Anti-Slavery Society draws on 120 years of anti-slavery publications, like the "Anti-Slavery Reporter," to explain its unique status as the first international human rights organization; and explains the Society's surprising attitudes to the Confederate secession, the "coolies," and the colonization of Africa
