Summary In 'Moral Commerce', Julie L. Holcomb traces the genealogy of the boycott of slave labour from its 17th century Quaker origins through its late 19th century decline. In their failures and in their successes, in their resilience and their persistence, antislavery consumers help us understand the possibilities and the limitations of moral commerce
