This paper explores the movement towards abolition in Britain prior to the U.S. civil war. It compares the movement to that in the U.S. and the specific factors that brought upon the end to slavery in Britain.

From the paper:

"Abolition in Britain did not arise as a movement merely out of the goodness of people?s hearts but was rather the result of a number of complex forces. Abolition became a popular cause in part because of other reforms that were occurring in British society and politics at the time and in part because it was no longer economically advantageous to Britain ? as well as because it was to many morally repugnant."
