9780312411763: Slavery, Freedom, and the Law in the Atlantic World: A Brief History with Documents (Bedford Series in History & Culture (Paperback))

During the era of revolution, independence, and emancipation in the north Atlantic, "slavery" and "freedom" were fluid and contested concepts. Individuals and groups turned to courts of law to define and enforce the status of indigenous Americans, forcibly imported Africans, and colonizing Europeans -- and their progeny. Legal institutions of the state manufactured and mediated a new, dynamic concept of freedom, inventing categories of race and codifying white privilege. In this collection of documents from the French, British, Spanish, and Portuguese empires, Peabody and Grinberg introduce the voices of slaves, slave-holders, jurists, legislators, and others who struggled to critique, overturn, justify, or simply describe the social order in which they found themselves. Discussion questions, illustrations, a glossary, and a bibliography allow students to analyze these rich documents and discern their lasting influences.

About the Author:

SUE PEABODY (Ph.D., University of Iowa), is associate professor of history at Washington State University Vancouver. Her influential book There Are No Slaves in France (1996) examines the legal history of French slavery and race in the eighteenth century. Peabody's current research focuses on the legal concept of "Free Soil" in the wider Atlantic world.
KEILA GRINBERG (Ph.D., Universidade Federal Fluminense), is an associate professor of history at the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. She is an expert on slavery, civil law, and citizenship in Brazil, subjects on which she has published in the United States, Brazil, and elsewhere.

Review:

"Among the volume's strengths, apart from its sweeping geographical, cultural, and chronological scope, is its emphasis on slavery as a system of negotiation involving a complex process of bargaining and accommodation. In line with the most recent scholarship, the authors do a very effective job of portraying the enslaved as actors, rather than simply as passive victims, without minimizing the importance of their allies in the struggle against slavery. The authors also do a very effective job of discussing the intricate connections between slavery and the evolution of racial attitudes. ... This is a serious work of scholarship that is clearly written."--Steven Mintz, University of Houston
"The authors do a first-rate job in carrying out [their] ambitious agenda. In almost every case, they have selected the essential legal documents regarding the establishment of, challenges to, and eventual destruction of Atlantic slavery. Their editing and interpretation of the documents is exemplary, reflecting a firm grasp of the complexities of the subject, and a thorough knowledge of an extensive historical literature. What ismore, their authorial style and pace should be inviting to student readers. ... In short, this is a well-crafted book that will engage readers in learning more about the people and forces that shaped Atlantic slave societies."--T. Stephen Whitman, Mount St. Mary's University
