Overview

This abridgment of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of colonial life—and one of the strongest indictments ever to appear against New World slavery.

Editorial Reviews

Colonial Latin American Historical Review

This abridged edition includes about half of Stedman's original text and over a third of the original plates... The text itself is made more readable by moderate editorial changes in spelling, punctuation, and word order... A well-accomplished abridgment of the editors' own 1988 edition.
