Charles Sumner's White Slavery in the Barbary States (1853)

Just found this gem in  Very readable, and careful to emphasize that the Barbary States were simply lagging behind Europe in the abolition of slavery.

  1. Slavery was abolished in western Europe (France, Belgium, Netherlands, etc. and west Germany) in 1945. Slavery was abolished in eastern Europe (Poland, Russian, Latvia, Romania, etc. and east Germany) in 1991.
