Abstract:

"Societies after Slavery is the definitive resource for scholars and students engaged in research on postemancipation societies in the Americas and Africa. Providing thousands of entries and scholarly annotations, the bibliography covers a span of emancipations from the British West Indies in the 1830s to Sierra Leone in 1927." "To aid researchers conducting comparative studies, the editors - leading figures in slavery and postemancipation research - have identified and annotated primary and secondary sources that can be readily found in major research libraries or accessed from any university or public library participating in a research consortium. The bibliography is arranged geographically - the British West Indies, British Colonial Africa, South Africa, Cuba, and Brazil - and includes sources such as parliamentary and congressional hearings and inquiries, reports of governmental and international agencies, missionary records, published census reports, correspondence published in the context of contemporary debates, personal memoirs, surveys, autobiographies, early sociological and ethnographic studies, and transcriptions of oral interviews." "Societies after Slavery also features many new documentary sources for use in teaching courses such as the comparative history of slavery and emancipation, and is particularly useful for professors undertaking the challenge of an Atlantic Studies or other systematic approach to the history of Europe, Africa, and the Americas."--BOOK JACKET.
