Editorial Reviews

Review

This magnificent study by Professor Richardson of the relevance of international law to the struggle of African Americans against slavery and the slave trade of the course of several centuries deserves the widest possible reading. Such an outstanding jurisprudential account of anti-slavery resistance from the perspective of slavery's captives fills a crucial gap in the scholarly literature. It is a great contribution. --Richard Falk, Albert G. Milbank Professor of International Law and Practice Emeritus, Princeton University, and Visiting Professor of Global and International Studies, University of California at Santa Barbara

Richardson presents a thorough analysis of African American interests in international law and how principles emanating from outside law have historically been linked to Blacks' appeals to quality and freedom. The book is most appropriate for the graduate and professional (law) level and would be suited for courses in African American/American History, Race and the Law, and American Legal History. --Law & Politics Book Review

Richardson has written a decidedly original and provocative volume that is a fascinating, intriguing, and tremendously informative read… [T]his book is a treasure trove of information … The depth of research, which must be commended, and Richardson's astute analysis make this volume a useful one for any library and an absolute necessity for institutional collections. --The American Journal of International Law
