A social history of mid-nineteenth century Cuba as experienced by George Backhouse (and his wife, Grace), who served on the Anglo-Spanish Havana Mixed Commission for the Suppression of the Slave Trade. Through richly textured prose, enlivened with extracts from the Backhouses' correspondence, diaries, and other contemporary papers, Martinez-Fernandez paints a detailed picture of the Cuban slave trade, its role in the sugar industry, and the interrelated contradictions within Cuba's economy, society, and politics.
