"Sir can yu show statistics or refrences for your statements?"

I'm not sure what you're asking for. A list of works on British abolitionism? French? A list of every person in the world in 1860 who though slavery was wrong?

I had a wonderful graduate course on comparative slavery and abolition. If you're interested in the topic, here's a few places to start.

Moral Capital: Foundations of British Abolitionism, by Christopher Brown.

A Colony of Citizens: Revolution and Slave Emancipation in the French Caribbean, by Laurent Dubois

The Mighty Experiment: Free Labor Versus Slavery in British Emancipation

Ideas of Slavery from Aristotle to Augustine, by Peter Garnsey

Capitalism and Slavery, by Eric Williams
