This book charts the process of abolition in the United Kingdom. Thomas Clarkson, along with people like William Wilberforce, Granville Sharp, James Edward Oglethorpe and Lord Mansfield were among that small group of people who were progressive enough in a wholly otherwise non-progressive era, to put forward the case that slavery violated the rights of men and women. Clarkson, in his later years, continued on with his quest; campaigning for the end to slavery worldwide.
