"By approaching the history of the Atlantic slave trade from a social and cultural perspective, rather than emphasising demographics, this collection of twelve essays sheds light on the diverse experiences of Africans and their descendants, while drawing connections between African and Creole slave societies across the Atlantic. [...] This collection offers a diverse range of perspectives on slavery and the slave trade in the Atlantic." [Urmi Engineer in Itinerario, August 2012]
"[...] the quality and variety of the contributions make this book a desirable purchase for research libraries, and scholars of the history and culture of slavery [...]. Araujo and her contributors deserve praise for putting together this exciting collection, as does Cambria Press for producing it as an attractively designed and well-laid-out volume." [Natlhalie Zacek, Journal of Latin American Studies, Nov. 2012]
