The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano: Written by Himself, Second Edition (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)
More than just a fascinating story, Olaudah Equiano's autobiography--the first slave narrative to be widely read--reveals many aspects of the eighteenth-century Western world through the experiences of one individual. The second edition takes into consideration the latest scholarship on Atlantic history and the history of slavery. Professor Allisons introduction, which places Equianos narrative in the context of the Atlantic slave trade, has been revised and updated to include a discussion of the geographic origins of African slaves and the debate over Equianos birthplace. Expanded and improved pedagogical features include contemporary illustrations with extensive captions and a map showing the travels of Equiano in more detail. Helpful footnotes provide guidance throughout the eighteenth-century text, and a chronology and an up-to-date bibliography aid students in their study of this thought-provoking narrative.
