Abstract

Preface to a collection of essays based on a conference at the University of Huddersfield, exploring the links between Richard Oastler's extraordinarily influential campaign against child labour in Yorkshire after 1830 and the remarkably successful campaign to abolish the transatlantic slave trade led by Yorkshire MP William Wilberforce before 1807.
