GLOBAL TRADE AND INTERACTION IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY Focus: The Atlantic Slave Trade Introduction 1. Studying the slave trade in Africa & Americas provides context for other developments - The American Civil War and developments before and after it - The development of the West Indies - Particularly islands such as Cuba, Jamaica, and Barbados - The development of Latin American countries such as Brazil - The emergence of economically powerful N.W. Europe - The impact of migration on world history - The (black) race question in modern socio-political life, particularly the U.S.A. - The effect of religious belief on social questions and developments 2.
