Editorial Reviews

Review

From thousands of gossamer, broken threads of narrative, Jane Landers has rewoven the whole tapestry of life along the Atlantic seaboard for Native Americans, imported slaves, Creoles and free blacks. Excellently researched, and eminently readable, it is an illuminating, groundbreaking work. (Madison Smartt Bell, author of Toussaint Louverture: A Biography)

Landers follows the extraordinary odysseys of black royalists, counter-revolutionaries, and maroons, whose daring movements through a treacherous political landscape traced a hidden history of freedom in the shadow of slavery. (Vincent Brown, author of The Reaper's Garden: Death and Power in the World of Atlantic Slavery)

This fascinating study shows how individuals responded to bondage and attempted to find a niche in the slave societies of the Americas, a process that Landers calls becoming Atlantic Creole. (Paul E. Lovejoy, Director, The Harriet Tubman Institute)

Landers delineates in fascinating detail the crucial leadership African Creoles exercised in revolutionary movements throughout the circum-Caribbean region. (Karen Ordahl Kupperman, Silver Professor of History, New York University)

Landers has assembled admirable accounts of some extraordinarily agile Africans and African-Americans, in and out of slavery, in and around the Caribbean at the end of the eighteenth century. (Joseph Miller, T. Cary Johnson, Jr., Professor in the Department of History at the University of Virginia)

Above all else, Atlantic creoles sought freedom. Landers has done an excellent job in excavating their lives and highlighting their significance in the Age of Revolutions. (Gad Heuman Times Literary Supplement 2010-04-30)
