Maroon Societies, third edition

Rebel Slave Communities in the Americas

Edited by Richard Price

Now in its twenty-fifth anniversary edition, Maroon Societies is a systematic study of the communities formed by escaped slaves in the Caribbean, Latin America, and the United States. These societies ranged from small bands that survived less than a year to powerful states encompassing thousands of members and surviving for generations and even centuries. The volume includes eyewitness accounts written by escaped slaves and their pursuers, as well as modern historical and anthropological studies of the maroon experience. From the recipient of the J. I. Staley Prize in Anthropology

Endorsements

A splendid anthology, skillfully edited and introduced... an excellent book.

- Eugene D. Genovese

Reviewss

Price breaks new ground in the study of slave resistance in his 'hemispheric' view of Maroon societies.

- Journal of Ethnic Studies

This book should be widely used in courses dealing with AfroAmerican problems. It can be added to the growing literature on slave revolts as a corrective to the commonly accepted view of slave submissiveness and apathy.
