Paul E. Isert, a Dane, arrived in Ghana (then the Gold Coast) in 1783, taking advantage of an opening in the slave trade between Guinea and the West Indies. He was appointed as chief surgeon to the Danish establishments on the Guinea Coast. In 1786 he sailed to the West Indies with a cargo of slaves, who revolted. His experiences in Ghana and the West Indies resolved him to end the trans-Atlantic slave abuse. This book is written in the form of letters to his father. An elusive character, it is clear that he nonetheless had an unreservedly positive attitude towards Africa and its indigenous peoples, and an equally negative attitude towards the Europeans on the Guinea coast. An admirer of Rousseau?s philosophy, he was concerned about the corrupting influence of the European? civilisation? on the? Blacks? His writing attempts at objectivity, seeking to find the common humanity. He claims that the? Black? was, at least equal to that of the? European?which was not shared by his Danish predecessors. This is the first English language edition of his original Danish letters, previously published in German, Dutch, French, and Swedish.

Isert's book, in the form of twelve letters evidently written for publication, has excited interest ever since it first appeared in 1788. Though Isert's text was long ago translated into other languages, this is its first translation from the original German into English. Already a respected botanist and medical doctor, Isert became interested in ethnography on his arrival in Accra. Isert also has a special place in West African history because of his attempt to establish a plantation on the Gold Coast to counteract the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Throughout his text Isert draws a clear and lively picture of life on the Gold and Slave Coasts of Africa and the Danish and French islands in the West Indies at the end of the eighteenth century. hardcover, Label: Oxford University Press, Oxford University Press, Produktgruppe: Book, Publiziert: 1992-02-27, Studio: Oxford University Press, Verkaufsrang: 13566229
