Editorial Reviews

Review

"... enriching reading on the complexity and diversity of women's lives under slavery... its subject is essential to the study of slavery, it offers some excellent remedies for the gaps that undoubtedly plague many reading lists on the topic." - Journal of Economic History "This valuable collection will be read with interest by all students of women's history." - Plantation Society in the Americas "This book makes an important contribution to our understanding of slave women in the Americas while offering ideas for new research directions." - New West Indian Guide/Nieuwe West-Indische Gids "This superb collection makes an important contribution to our understanding of slavery." - Times Literary Supplement "This exciting collection demonstrates that 'gendered relations and expectations' means that 'slave women experienced slavery quite differently from slave men.' ... The volume provides an excellent overview of the growing integration of the history of slavery and women's history, and is admirably suited for course work in those fields." - Choice " ... a much-needed volume on a neglected topic that is of great interest to scholars of women, slavery, and African American history." - Drew Faust "This provocative text is yet another example of the valuable contributions to scholarship that have been made by Dr. Gaspar and Dr. Hine." - The Journal of American History "... this volume is a first-rate introduction to students ..." - Labor History

From the Back Cover

Gender was a decisive force in slave society. Slave men's experiences differed from those of slave women, who were exploited in both reproductive and productive capacities. They did not figure prominently in revolts because they engaged in less confrontational methods of resistance, emphasizing creative struggle to survive dehumanization and abuse.
