Our Liverpool University Press book series

The Liverpool Studies in International Slavery book series informs debate about slavery and its many legacies, adopting novel, international, comparative, or interdisciplinary approaches. The volumes in this series examine the cultural and social effects of slave trade, slavery, and resistance, on all societies involved, as well as the study of memorialisation and the interpretation of slavery as part of a wider public history agenda.

The editors of the series are Dr Richard Huzzey (Durham University) and Professor Mark M. Smith (University of South Carolina), working with the Press's commissioning editor Alison Welsby. Proposals are welcome from researchers with books on any aspect of slavery and abolition in historical or contemporary societies.

Query letters and submissions should follow the Press's guidance for prospective authors.

Current volumes in the series include:
