This volume presents a quantitative study of Cuban slavery from the late eighteenth century until 1880, the year slavery was formally abolished on the island. The core of this study is an examination of the yearly movement of slave prices and changes in the demographic characteristics of the slave market. Incorporating over 30,000 slave transactions from three separate locations in Cuba--Havana, Santiago, and Cienfuegos--this work comprises the largest extant database on any slave market in the Americas.
