From the Publisher
"Well researched and informative, this work offers an in-depth survey of the world's major slave revolts and touches on many of the lesser-known aspects of them. Little has been written about this topic since the documentation of the subject is relatively scanty (largely because slave revolts were rarely successful)….This intriguing reference stands alone in its field and will be a solid addition."
School Library Journal
"High school students and up will learn about historic events that have shaped the world."
"…this volume seems like a useful addition to college and school libraries, particularly if institutions can add complementary books in the series."
"The author puts forward a global view on the topic and adds chapters on pre-1500s peasant uprisings, marronage (rebellion through flight), and slave leadership roles. Common themes of harsh treatment and the threat of punishment are echoed in the short biographies and primary-source documents that supplement a text written for advanced researchers."
