In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

t his book has required extensive research in far-flung places that would not have been possible without generous grants from the Australian Research Council, which also provided a five-year professorial fellowship for Cassandra Pybus and a four-year postdoctoral fellowship for Kit Candlin. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to independent researchers Chris Rathbone , John Wilmer, and David Alston, who have unstintingly shared research with us that has proved invaluable. Equally invaluable has been the generous assistance we received from Curtis Jacobs of the University of the West Indies in Grenada. We cannot thank these people enough. We are also indebted to the Legacies of British Slave-Ownership team working at University College, London, under the direction of Catherine Hall, and in particular we want to acknowledge the help we received from Nick Draper. Over the years we have been encouraged and stimulated by discussions with numerous scholars and especially wish to acknowledge Gad Heuman, Barry Higman, Lucy Frost, Jerry Handler, Daniel Livesay, Peter Hulme, Catherine Hall, Richard Drayton, Rebecca Scott, Maya Jasanoff, Marcus Rediker, and Richard Newman. We have been more than fortunate to work in an outstanding intellectual environment in the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry at the University of Sydney, and we are grateful for the support we have received from the school and from Maria Cortes and Cam Pham in particular. Special thanks are due to Andrew Fitzmaurice, the head of the Department of History, and to our colleagues in the research support group: Penny Russell , Kirsten McKenzie, Clair Lowry, Blanca Tovias, Ann Cuthoys, Richard White, Mark McKenna, Judy Keene, and Cindy McCreery.
