Abstract
    The Hankey, a small British ship that circled the Atlantic in 1792 and 1793, transformed the history of the Atlantic world. This book uncovers the long-forgotten story of the Hankey, from its altruistic beginnings to its disastrous end, and describes the ship’s fateful impact upon people from West Africa to Philadelphia, Haiti to London.
