This chapter discusses the political aspects of slave-trade escalation. In response to the Royal African Company’s monopoly over the transatlantic slave trade, independent slave traders mounted a campaign to satisfy the demand for slaves. In the aftermath of the Glorious Revolution, they carried on a political movement that transformed the contours and capacity of Britain’s slave trade.
