"Based on new evidence, Warren links the growth of the northern colonies to the Atlantic slave trade, demonstrating how NewEngland's economy derived its vitality from the profusion of slave-trading ships coursing through its ports. Warren documents how Indians were systematically sold into slavery in the West Indies and reveals how colonial families like the Winthrops were motivated not only by religious freedom but also by their slave-trading investments. NewEngland Bound punctures the myth of a shining 'City on a Hill,' forcefully demonstrating that the history of American slavery can no longer confine itself to the nineteenth-century South."--Publisher's Web site.
