The diligent/ Slave trade

he Paper:
At the height of the slave trade, the 16th to 19th century, more than 40,000 slave ships plied the waters of the Atlantic, bringing human cargo from Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean. One such vessel was The Diligent, whose First Lieutenant Robert Durand left behind a journal capturing the daily life on the vessel. Using the recollections captured in the journal as a starting point, the historian Robert Harms reconstructed the complex business of the slave trade.
Using ideas from The Diligent choose ONE of the following topics to write on:

1. Create and support an argument for the economic viability of the slave trade during the period of time covered by this particular voyage.
2. Analyze the arguments for both the continuation of slavery and for its abolition.
3. Using examples from the text analyze the triangular trade. Some questions to consider (not exhaustive): Why was it successful? If any one part were missing would it have continued to work? Why trade with Africa in the first place?
