Review:

"'Swing the Sickle' demonstrates how far gender has come as a category of historical analysis in slave studies. It displays refinement, nuance, and balance ... [and] brings together gender, work, family, and economy in an easily accessible, readable account useful to slave scholars and students of Georgia slavery in particular." Georgia Historical Quarterly "Reconstructing the practices of slavery from plantation records, memoirs, and newspapers and the encounter with those practices through folk songs and ex-slave testimonies, Berry succeeds in capturing commonalities and differences in slavery in white-majority communities and African American-majority communities... [An] important contribution to historiography. Recommended." Choice "Berry's fresh approach to studying slavery in Georgia includes new discussions of gender exploitation, family, and worker's skills. 'Swing the Sickle for the Harvest Is Ripe' makes a tremendous contribution to the field, as it makes important connections between labor, skill and gender, forced breeding, and the informal economy." Deborah Gray White, author of Ar'n't I a Woman?: Female Slaves in the Antebellum South and Too Heavy a Load: Black Women in Defense of Themselves, 1894-1994

From the Publisher:

This book compares the work, family, and economic experiences of enslaved women and men in upcountry and lowland Georgia during the nineteenth century. Mining planters' daybooks, plantation records, and a wealth of other sources, Daina Ramey Berry shows how slaves' experiences on large self-contained plantations contrasted with those on small plantations, where planters allowed slaves more open, fluid communications. Berry invites readers into slaves' internal lives through her detailed examination of domestic violence, separation and sale, and forced breeding.

Descripción University of Illinois Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Swing the Sickle for the Harvest Is Ripe compares the work, family, and economic experiences of enslaved women and men in upcountry and lowcountry Georgia during the nineteenth century. Mining planters daybooks, plantation records, and a wealth of other sources, Daina Ramey Berry shows how slaves experiences on large plantations, which were essentially self-contained, closed communities, contrasted with those on small plantations, where planters interests in sharing their workforces allowed slaves more open, fluid communications. By inviting readers into slaves internal lives through her detailed examination of domestic violence, separation and sale, and forced breeding, Berry also reveals important new ways of understanding what it meant to be a female or male slave, as well as how public and private aspects of slave life influenced each other on the plantation.
