"The contributors employ diverse methodologies from demographic and political history to geography and cultural studies as they investigate such topics as the illegal slave trade in Cuba, the Creole slave revolt in the United States, and the debate between pro- and antislavery factions over the interstate slave trade in the South. Their essays cast new light upon - and in many cases completely rework - questions that have framed the study of slavery in the Americas for decades."--Jacket." ;
