From the Publisher'This excellent set of essays gathered and introduced by Laurent Dubois and Julius Scott will become a classic of its kind — useful to scholars, teachers, and readers of history as long as we want to understand the world of race and class we live in.'
— Marcus Rediker, author of The Slave Ship: A Human History
'Any course on Atlantic revolutions would benefit from this anthology. It provides an important counter-weight to more Euro-centric accounts of the Age of Revolution by showing how enslaved people understood and re-imagined their role within the societies that had enslaved them.'
— John D. Garrigus, author of Before Haiti: Race and Citizenship in French Saint-Domingue
'Laurent Dubois and Julius Scott have put together an up-to-date collection of the most interesting literature on the formation of the Black Atlantic, which could easily form the core of a course on the subject. They have been particularly careful to find literature that reveals the dynamic nature of Afro-Atlantic culture and its engagement with the political and cultural dimensions of the Americas.'
— John Thornton
'An extraordinarily rich and skilfully assembled collection, and well suited to classroom use, this represents a valuable contribution to an increasingly sophisticated field.' – Journal of American Studies
