    ePUB Adam Hochschild Ó Ó Bury the Chains PDF/EPUB ✓ Bury the eBook ✓ bury pdf, chains mobile, Bury the mobile, Bury the Chains KindleThis account of a group of British activists' campaign for the abolition of the slave trade even while Britain was profiting mightily from it is readable and inspiring Not stopping when the importation of slaves into the colonies was ended the activists persisted until complete emancipation of all slaves was achieved despite much frustration and continued violence throughout the British empire It is an astonishing achievement as stunning now as it was then It was both uplifting to see the activists' own commitment and their ability to mobilize others and horrifying that such everyday brutality to the slaves endured as long as it did with the additional huge loss of life on both sides in wars that were fought to suppress slave rebellions I found this to be a magnificent and moving book that will serve as an encouragement to those working on social justice issues today
