Suggestions from DA re issues in a Scottish context: 

the period of forced, unpaid labour under apprenticeship until 1838;

continued slavery under the East India Company until 1843;

the creation of the systems of indentured labour by Indians, Madeirans, Chinese, Africans and others with a strong Scottish input to recruiting, management and control;

continued illegal slave-ownership by Scots in non-British colonies;

continued campaigning against the continuance of slavery in the US and Dutch colonies etc;

and the development of more systematic and pseudo-scientific views on race which play a strong role in colonialism.
