"As a major slave owner [John Gladstone] was deeply embroiled in the troubles of the West Indies, in the debates on slavery and in the emancipation struggle; he was one of the foremost lobbyists among the planters, resisting this first step within the British Empire toward turning slaves into a wage-earning labour force" (Checkland, The Gladstones: A Family Biography, Cambridge University Press: 1971, p. xi). For an overview of Gladstone's slaveholdings, his position on the institution, and his role in the emancipation debate, see Checkland, chapters 19 and 24.
