Gale, part of Cengage Learning and a leading publisher of research and reference resources for libraries, schools and businesses, today announced new series for three Gale Digital Collections – Slavery and Anti-Slavery, The Making of the Modern World and The Making of Modern Law.

“We are excited to publish additional installments of these important collections,” said Jim Draper, vice president and publisher, Gale. “With these new releases, Gale continues to fulfill its mission to create essential resources for scholars and students in fields of high interest.”

Draper added: “Most of the materials in these new installments have never been digitized before or even published in microfilm, making them fresh destinations for performing in-depth research in a variety of disciplines. Now, with substantial new content being added to the collections, students and researchers have the opportunity to create important new scholarship in many areas of study.”

The new series, targeted to academic, special and public libraries, are currently available for purchase and trial and include:

• Slavery and Anti-Slavery, Part II: Slave Trade in the Atlantic World – Complementing Part I: Debates over Slavery and Abolition, which explored the varying debates that surrounded the practice, experience and abolition of slavery in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Part II focuses on the Atlantic Slave Trade and its aftermath through a corpus of historical printed documents and manuscript collections. It documents the slave trade as a key global phenomenon with ramifications for the study of commerce, philosophical and moral issues, literature, empire, law, government and international relations. Sourced from prestigious institutions worldwide, Slavery and Anti-Slavery is considered to be the most important undertaking related to the study of slavery, as nothing comparable currently exists. Future series include Part III: Institution of Slavery and Part IV: Age of Emancipation.
• The Making of the Modern World, Part II: 1851-1914 – Following on the release of Part I: The Goldsmiths’-Kress Collection, 1450-1850, which focused on the expansion of world trade, the Industrial Revolution and the development of modern capitalism, Part II takes the series into the early 20th century. Comprised mainly of monographs, reports, correspondence, speeches, and surveys, this collection includes international coverage of social, economic, and business history, as well as political science, technology, industrialization and the birth of the modern corporation. Cross-searchable with Part I of the series, these collections combined provide access to 450 years of world history.
• The Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources II, 1763-1970 – Adding over 1.6 million pages of content sourced from the Harvard Law School Library, Yale Law Library and the Law Library of Congress, this archive supports far-reaching research in legal and social history. Scholars interested in tracing major legal topics across states and territories will find it valuable. It is comprised of United States codes, constitutional conventions and compilations, and municipal codes, and is cross-searchable with Primary Sources, Part I. Volumes in this collection are, for the most part, not digitally available elsewhere, making the collection particularly unique. The four previous components in the series include: Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926; Making of Modern Law: U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs, 1832-1978; Making of Modern Law: Trials, 1600-1926; and Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources, 1620-1926.
