Farmington Hills, Mich., June 26, 2009  Gale, part of Cengage Learning,
today introduced a new electronic resource offering the most comprehensive
archive available chronicling slavery from the 16th Century through the
early 20th Century. Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive,
represents the first-ever, large-scale database to make available
historical books, manuscripts, newspapers, periodicals, court records, and
other sources in one cross-searchable location.


<snip>


The first of the four-part series, Debates over Slavery and Abolition,
explores the varying viewpoints and debates that surrounded the practice,
experience and eventual abolition of slavery in the U.S., as well as in
Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean. It will be followed by Part II
in 2011. Once completed, the entire four-part digital archive will
comprise 5 million pages of documents.

This collection--Debates over Slavery and Abolition, Slave Trade in the
Atlantic World, Institution of Slavery, Age of Emancipation--embraces the
historical study of slavery in a comprehensive, conceptual and global way.

Collections drawn from institutions such as Amistad Research Center,
Oberlin College, Yale University, and Oxford University allow for
unparalleled depth and breadth of content.
