"In the 1760s, around 40,000 slaves a year were taken from Africa in British ships, on the notorious 'Middle Passage,' to the
Caribbean. In 1787, under an oak tree in Kent, the British Prime Minister, William Pitt, invited his friend William Wilberforce
to introduce a parliamentary bill outlawing the slave trade. Neither of them imagined a twenty-year political campaign that
would consume the rest of Wilberforce's life. Written in a lively and engaging style, this biography of William Wilberforce
transports the reader back to a dramatic age of conflict and upheaval."
