Neither Slave nor Free The Freedman of African Descent in the Slave Societies of the New World by David W. Cohen
  

Neither Slave nor Free The Freedman of African Descent in the Slave Societies of the New World

Part of the The Johns Hopkins Symposia in Comparative History Series

Synopsis

Neither Slave nor Free The Freedman of African Descent in the Slave Societies of the New World by David W. Cohen

These ten essays constitute a distinctive contribution to the enticing but treacherous domain of a comparative history. (The book) succeeds because it is written by qualified scholars who address a delimited, manageable subject ( American Historical Review ).

Reviews

An important collection of 10 essays on the almost totally neglected subject of the freedman in North and South American slave societies that developed out of a symposium held at Johns Hopkins University in 1970... All of these essays furnish important insights into our understanding of racism and slave societies in the Americas. Much significance is attached to the ratios of freedmen to slaves; the statistical information alone is invaluable. All this and much more makes this book one that belongs in every college library. * Choice *
