by Dicky Sam - £4.99 Scouse Press (1985)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780901367327 | ISBN 10: 090136732x
Facsimile reprint of a book first published in 1884, at a time when the British slave trade had been dead for more than 50 years, but many of the slave traders and captains who commanded the slave ships would still have been alive. (Which is probably why the author used a pseudonym - 'Dicky Sam' being an old Lancashire nickname for a Liverpool man).
A history of Liverpool's extensive involvement in the slave trade, how the city's wealth was bound up with the trade - and also looks at those who opposed it.
