    Failure to include a bibliography and footnotes will detrimentally impact on the marks for presentation of your work (see marking schema in your handbook). This is arranged under topic headings. Items marked with an asterisk are essential reading. Students are advised to buy four paperbacks which cover a fair amount of the material covered during the course. These books are:
    1. Caribbean slavery in the Atlantic world: a student reader - Hilary McD. Beckles, Verene Shepherd 2000

      Book Essential reading

    4. Students should note that the Brunel University Library takes the journal Slavery and Abolition, which appears three times a year. This scholarly journal includes many articles, book reviews and bibliographies relevant to this course. For a useful review of secondary literature see Verene A. Shepherd, `Slavery and the Plantation System in the British Caribbean: The Example of Jamaica,' The Historian no.29 (Winter 1990/1). A good survey of Caribbean development in the slavery era is B.W. Higman, 'Economic and Social Development of the British West Indies, from Settlement to ca.1850' in Stanley L. Engerman and Robert E. Gallman (eds.), The Cambridge Economic History of the United States: Volume 1: The Colonial Era (1996), ch.7. A comprehensive bibliography is Joseph C. Miller, Slavery and Slaving in World History: A Bibliography, 1900-1991 (1992), REF.016.306.362 MIL. Two helpful encyclopaedias of slavery are available in the library. They are Paul Finkelman and Joseph C. Miller (eds.), Macmillan Encyclopedia of World Slavery, 2 vols. (1998) and Seymour Drescher and Stanley L. Engerman (eds.), A Historical Guide to World Slavery (1998). These encyclopaedias contain a fair amount of useful material relevant for this module.
