"Stimulating, incisive, insightful, sometimes revisionist, thisvolume is required reading for historians of comparative colonialism in an age ofrevolution." -- Choice "(An) eminently original andintellectually exciting book." -- William and MaryQuarterly This volume examines several slave societies in theGreater Caribbean to illustrate the pervasive and multi-layered impact of therevolutionary age on the region.
