fact older than money or written language Now it is considered morally repugnant Todayossil Repeat Performance fuels are considered the sine ua non of the global economy Bury the Chains offers a terrific historical perspective on how we might change that I do wish Hochschild had gone deeper into how the uakers rejected slavery which led to Evangelicals across England rejecting it too Margaret Mead once said Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world Indeed it is the only thing that ever has This book is the story of those thoughtful committed citizens beginning with twelve men who met in a bookshop in London in 1787 toorm a society committed to abolishing the slave tradeThe story of that campaign is really uite astonishing The slave trade s demise was helped by the incredible organisation of those original twelve men who effectively invented almost every aspect campaigning that we know today petitions lectures those original twelve men who effectively invented every aspect of campaigning that we know today petitions lectures public pressure advertising puff pieces in newspapers Newsjacking fliers posters books In less than a single lifetime slavery wentrom an institution that no one uestioned the economic bedrock of the British Empire a system in which The Baron Goes Fast (Baron, fortunes were made and increased to being abolished When you think about it that s incrediblyast Think about the issues that excite us today sweatshops poverty sex trafficking Can you imagine any of those being solved within our own lifetimesI couldn t put this book down It moved me to tears on than one occasion particularly Hochschild s The Organic City final conclusion one of theirst great Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary flowerings of a very modern belief that the way to stir men and women to action is not by biblical argument but through the vivid unforgettable description of acts of great injustice done to theirellow human beings The abolitionists placed their hope not in sacred texts but in human empathy We live with that hope still 25 stars I m ascinated by the British abolition movement of the 18th 19th centuries I haven t read much about the American movement which I need to correct so as soon as I saw Hochschild s book I was eager to get my hands on it unfortunately I was rather disappointed and provoked The information is great and I especially Appreciated That Rather Than that rather than the story of Parliamentary machinations andor Wilberforce again Hochschild Giving the Body Its Due focuses on the broader abolition movement restoring Thomas Clarkson to the limelight and how it combined with slave rebellions in the British West Indies to bring about an endirst to the slave trade and then to slavery in.

Bury the ChainsThe British Empire I would have really enjoyed the book if it hadn t been Living Doll for the tone Empathy is theirst tool of a historian and Hochschild in my opinion lacks it Of course this is a tough statement to make given that he s writing a history of a true atrocity the enslavement and brutalization of millions of people and it s hard now to Designing for Magazines feel any identification with the absentee landowners and very present managers and all those who profitedrom the slave trade and slavery My problem with Hochschild s writing is that it s so The Wild Side full of the arrogance of modernity to think that the human race has progressed soar that we now have the luxury of sneering at the men and women of the past Yes part of doing history is making judgments about past actions But that should be done as much as possible with a spirit of understanding self criticism and humility Of course your horror at the truly horrible realities of slavery is going to come through but is it necessary to continually beat the dead horse of look how backwards these people were in order to get readers to be on your side I really don t think so Instead we might do better to consider the ways in which we today uite casually accept that some groups are less than human and therefore disposable while at the same time priding ourselves on our great enlightenment And yes I do see strong similarities between 18th 19th century abolitionists and the anti abortion movement of today though naturally abortion is not one of the contemporary evils Hochschild sees as needing to be challengedAnother thing that comes through is Hochschild s distaste False Start for Christianity and hisailure to understand it I get his desire to show that the Tombland fervently Evangelical Wilberforce was not the lone engine of the abolition movement and to show also that Wilberforce was not as progressive judged again by the standards of today as one might assume However belittling the Evangelical movement mocking the Clapham Saints and taking every opportunity to point out alleged hypocrisy was not necessary to achieve that goal In his eagerness to show that abolitionism wasn t the sole brainchild of the Great Awakening he all but jettisons EvangelicalismMethodism as AN explanatoryactor which I consider both biased and thoroughly His Plaything foolish Side note Hochschild complains that women s voices though loud in callingor abolition and emancipation were not respected and have since been largely written out of history He has a Cuckolded! Taken By My Husbands Bully fascinating section on Elizabeth Heyrick who in the 1820s rejected gradual emancipation and called insteador slavery to be ended immediately But a striking omission is that he never once mentions Hannah More a Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors friend of Wilberforce and an anti slavery activist in her own right I can t imagine Hochschild researched his entire book without hearing of her which leads me to the suspicion that she doesn t appear because she doesn tit his narrative she was herself an Evangelical and a Claphamite whom Hochschild seems to want to write off as backwards looking hidebound sin obsessed men In any case complaining about the erasure of emale abolitionists while simultaneously ignoring More strikes me as than a little bizarre END SIDE NOTEHochschild is eager to show that abolitionists didn t get it all right and that there was a lot of prejudice and paternalism in #Even Their Best Efforts #their best efforts is totally air As a believer I see this as yet prejudice and paternalism in even their best efforts This is totally air As a believer I see this as yet example of the truth THAT EVEN MANKIND S GOODNESS IS FATALLY FLAWED THAT even mankind s goodness is atally After We Collided (After, flawed that our best efforts are soull of self importance and wrong thinking that viewed Web Marketing For Dummies from the perspective of perfection they don t even deserve to be called good That isn t however what H concludes With his apparent belief in the innate goodness or at least the innate improvability of humanity what comes across is modern arrogance and a certain whinyness about even the best intentioned abolitionists as if to say that we of the 21st century could have done better Again there is a lot of good information here in a pretty readable style even if in my opinion weighted down by a superiority complex and I learned so much But I think the history not only could have been told but should have been told withar empathy and historical and even spiritual understanding Like his other books Adam Hochschild hits a home run on this one This is an area about which I was totally ignorant but having read this well written book I The Undesirables feel like I now have a decent grasp on the battleor abolition in Britain It is tempting to compare the battle in the West Indies to the one in America and while there are some similarities there are many differences Unlike America where the population had to be dragged kicking and screaming in the battle against slavery in Britain the people strongly supported it even though they realized that outlawing it could have very harsh repercussions economically In Britain the resistance came primarily Online Marketing. from Parliament where at the time the overwhelming majority of people had no say as they could not vote Both houses of Parliament wereilled with absentee landlords who owned huge numbers of slaves in places like Jamaica Included in the ranks of the plantation owners was the Church of England who owned a sizable number of slaves and the Hard Cold Winter (Van Shaw, father of theuture prime minister Gladstone The book has a great deal of information about the two most dedicated abolitionists Messrs Clarkston and WilburforceI would recommend this book to anyone interested in the history of slavery in this country as it provides a good comparison of the two systems One thing they had in common was the total disrespect of the people kidnapped and held in bondage Neko for the remainder of their lives and the cruelty inflicted upon them A very interesting and despite its grim subject matter a very enjoyable book Actually insofar as the subject matter is the abolitionirst of the British trans Atlantic slave trade and subseuently of slavery in the British Empire it is not grim but uplifting The author paints the movement as the prototype of contemporary activist causes Petitions graphic images local committees boycotts speaking tours all were used perhaps Malice (Conspiracy 365, for theirst time or Lily (The Mauve Legacy, for theirst time on United by their hatred of slavery came together in a London printing shop and began the world's irst grass roots movement battling or the rights of people on another continent Masterfully stoking public opinion the movement's leaders pioneered a variety of techniues that have been ad. .
