From the Publisher
“The publication of Philip Quaque’s correspondence is a major contribution to the growing literature on the writing of the African Diaspora—until recently thought to be a contradiction in terms. Carretta and Reese are model scholars in the field, digging deep to illuminate the cross-cultural currents not only of trade but also of religion and literacy, and how each buoyed yet challenged transatlantic slavery.”—Henry Louis Gates Jr.
“The editors have done an extraordinary and important job of introducing Philip Quaque’s voice to a new generation of readers. They have set the bar very high for others preparing editions of the correspondence and writings of Quaque’s contemporaries in this period of fertile circum-Atlantic exchange.”—International Bulletin of Missionary Research
