Críticas:

" Settler Jamaica takes advantage of a unique collection of contemporary sources to enrich and amplify existing knowledge and to provide a new level of detail on the many subjects on which those documents shed light." --Helen McKee "Rechtsgeschichte Legal History " Settler Jamaica in the 1750s is not merely important; it is unique in the level of quantitative data arrayed and analyzed pertaining to one eighteenth-century British American colony at a specific point in time. Taken together, the data and Jack Greene's commentaries enable us--indeed, compel us--to revise our understanding of Jamaica in the mid-eighteenth century in a variety of ways. --Peter A. Coclanis, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, author of The Shadow of a Dream: Economic Life and Death in the South Carolina Low Country, 1670-1920 The great virtue of this book is that it takes a large amount of data collected in the 1750s on the society and economy of a major British American colony and subjects that data to rigorous analysis. This highly quantitative book provides a social portrait of an eighteenth-century British American colony that cannot be matched. The depth of analysis is very impressive and adds something really interesting and important to a relatively sparse literature on the British West Indies in the mid-eighteenth century. --Trevor Burnard, The University of Melbourne, author of Mastery, Tyranny, and Desire: Thomas Thistlewood and His Slaves in the Anglo-Jamaican World "Settler Jamaica in the 1750s" is not merely important; it is unique in the level of quantitative data arrayed and analyzed pertaining to one eighteenth-century British American colony at a specific point in time.
