From the Publisher"A masterfully researched book. . . . Insights . . . about the structures and institutions that slaves and free people mobilized represent one of the book's greatest contributions."
"A microhistorical gem through which the lives and actions of the protagonists . . . are scrutinized and connected by admirable heuristic work. . . . Would recommend it without hesitation to both undergraduates and graduate students, as well as to any scholar interested in issues related to slavery in the Atlantic World. . . . May well become obligatory reading for anyone interested in the intriguing and exciting topic of slave rebelliousness in the Age of Revolution."
-New West Indian Guide
"A welcome contribution to the debates about slave rebellion and also about the nature of the societies of both the slave-owning Caribbean islands and of the free people of colour. Its detail is always fascinating and telling, and its argument sound and much needed."
— Journal of Latin American Studies
"Framed in an engaging narrative . . . a welcome contribution to the study of African slavery in the New World."
—Estudios Interdisciplinarios de América Latina y el Caribe
