Contents Annamaboe joins the Atlantic world -- John Corrantee and slave trade diplomacy at Annamaboe -- Richard Brew and the world of an African-Atlantic merchant -- The process of enslavement at Annamaboe -- Tracing the trade: Annamaboe and the rum men -- A world in motion: Annamaboe in the Atlantic community -- Things fall apart: the end of the eighteenth-century Atlantic world.
Summary "Annamaboe was the largest slave trading port on the eighteenth-century Gold Coast, and it was home to successful, wily African merchants whose unusual partnerships with their European counterparts made the town and its people an integral part of the Atlantic's webs of exchange. Where the Negroes Are Masters brings to life the outpost's feverish commercial bustle and continual brutality, recovering the experiences of the entrepreneurial black and white men who thrived on the lucrative traffic in human beings." -- Publisher website.
