Neither Slave nor Free

The Freedman of African Descent in the Slave Societies of the New World

"The ten essays deal with colonial Spanish America, Surinam and Curacao, colonial Brazil, the French Antilles, Saint Domingue, Jamaica, Barbados, the North American slave states, Cuba, and nineteenth-century Brazil . . . . One also gets a strong sense from these papers of the rich variation within each society . . . . An important book."—Journal of Southern History

"A distinctive contribution to the enticing but treacherous domain of comparative history. It succeeds because it is written by qualified scholars who address a delimited, manageable subject . . . . The task was to canvass current knowledge and pinpoint areas of needed research regarding two topics: first, the experience of the free colored as a measure of the character of slavery and race relations; second, the fundamental roles of this group in the evolution of the respective societies."—American Historical Review

Reviews

"An important collection of 10 essays on the almost totally neglected subject of the freedman in North and South American slave societies that developed out of a symposium held at Johns Hopkins University in 1970 . . . All of these essays furnish important insights into our understanding of racism and slave societies in the Americas. Much significance is attached to the ratios of freedmen to slaves; the statistical information alone is invaluable. All this and much more makes this book one that belongs in every college library."—Choice
