Editorial Reviews

Review

"A good addition to the historiography of the Atlantic slave trade." -Choice

"Central Africans, Atlantic Creoles, and the Foundation of the Americas, 1585-1660 is a compelling and well-researched account of the earliest days of Atlantic slavery that will reward students and academics, especially those who reject the notion that we cannot untangle the ultimate origins and cultural antecedents of the first African slaves." -John Roby, African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter

"This extremely important and informative book should put to rest any conceivable effort to minimize the brutally destructive impact of the Atlantic slave trade upon Africa and Africans or to blame the victims." -Gwendolyn Midlo Hall, The Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"...important contribution...to the history of Atlantic slavery." -Gayle K. Brunelle, H-Atlantic

Book Description

This book establishes Central Africa as the origin of most Africans brought to English and Dutch American colonies in North America, the Caribbean, and South America before 1660. It reveals that Central Africans were frequently possessors of an Atlantic Creole culture and places the movement of slaves and creation of the colonies within an Atlantic historical framework.

Excellent study of the roots of the Charter Generation of African-American slaves. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of slavery, of European-African interactions in the Colonial period, or in the origins of the various so-called "tri-racial isolate" groups of the Eastern United States, such as the Melungeons, Lumbees, etc. It expands upon and fine tunes Ira Berlin's conception of the "Atlantic Creole" culture of the first Africans brought to North America in the seventeenth century.

This book by Heywood and Thornton is really a great start for students who are planning on researching the historical roots of the cultural relations between Africa and America. And more, it's a work that follows the most recent debates on cultural transformations sufferd by the Africans subjected to slavery. Sorry for the poor english. Bye.
