Abolition of slavery in Suriname & Dutch Antilles marks 150 years

Forwarding a public announcement:

To mark the 150th anniversary of the abolition, on 1 July 1863, of almost 200 years of slavery in the former Dutch colonies of Suriname and the Dutch Antilles, the Library, Documentation and Information Department of the African Studies Centre Leiden has compiled a web dossier on Dutch involvement in the transatlantic slave trade and abolition.

The dossier contains titles published since 2003 on the abolition of slavery, the slave trade in general and Dutch involvement in it, as well as a selection of web resources. All titles are available in the ASC library. Each title links directly to the corresponding record in the library’s online catalogue which provides further details and, in many cases, an abstract.

The dossier can be found on the Library website at: http://www.ascleiden.nl/?q=content/dutch-involvement-transatlantic-slave-trade-and-abolition

Comments and suggestions are always welcome!
