From the writer of the commonly acclaimed King Leopold's Ghost comes the taut, gripping account of 1 of the main brilliantly prepared social justice campaigns in background -- the struggle to loose the slaves of the British Empire. In early 1787, twelve males -- a printer, a legal professional, a priest, and others united through their hatred of slavery -- got here jointly in a London printing store and commenced the world's first grass-roots stream, struggling with for the rights of individuals on one other continent. Masterfully stoking public opinion, the movement's leaders pioneered various thoughts which were followed by means of voters' events ever when you consider that, from purchaser boycotts to wall posters and lapel buttons to big name endorsements. A deft chronicle of this groundbreaking antislavery campaign and its strong enemies, Bury the Chains offers a little-celebrated human rights watershed its due at last.
