Description

The Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius and Bourbon and their satellite colony of Seychelles, collectively known as the Mascareignes, were all plantation colonies, as well as significant naval bases from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. Scarr uses Mauritian, British and French archival sources to examine both the situation of slaves, as painted by court records in particular, and the psychology of both slave traders and slave owners..
