Reviews
"A splendid anthology, skillfully edited and introduced . . . an excellent book."--Eugene D. Genovese

"Price breaks new ground in the study of slave resistance in his 'hemispheric' view of Maroon societies."--Journal of Ethnic Studies

" This book should be widely used in courses dealing with AfroAmerican problems. It can be added to the growing literature on slave revolts as a corrective to the commonly accepted view of slave submissiveness and apathy."--Manchester Guardian
