Yale historian Harms ("Games Against Nature") explores the global scope of an odious industry by tracking the slave ship "Diligent, " which sailed from Vannes, France, in 1731. Using First Lt. Robert Durand's journal, Harms fleshes out the multinational web of trade relationships and transactions, both legal and illegal.
