On the night of August 17, 1823, the distinctly African sounds of blaring shell-horns and beating drums signalled the start of one of the most massive slave rebellions in the history of the Western hemisphere, the uprising in the British colony of Demerara (now Guyana). That evening, nine to twelve thousand slaves surrounded the main houses of about sixty plantations, armed with cutlasses, knives fastened on poles, and guns. They broke down doors, smashed windows, commandeered arms and ammunition, and put their masters and overseers in the stocks. Intent on avoiding a blood bath (over three days of fighting, colonial forces took the lives of more than 255 slaves, while only two or three white men were killed), the rebels spoke of "rights", and planned to present their grievances to the governor. For a few days, the slaves succeeded in turning the world upside down, treating masters the way masters had always treated slaves. Retaliation from colonial officials would be swift, bloody, and brutal. In Crowns of Glory, Tears of Blood Emilia Viotti da Costa tells the riveting story of a pivotal moment in the history of slavery. Studying the complaints brought by slaves to the office of the Protector of Slaves, she reconstructs the experience of slavery through the eyes of the Demerara slaves themselves. Da Costa also draws on eyewitness accounts, official records, and private journals (most notably the diary of John Smith, one of four ministers sent by the London Missionary Society to convert Demerara's "heathen"), to paint a vivid portrait of a society in transition, shaken to its foundations by the recent revolutions in America, France, and Haiti. Smith and his wife, Jane, the planters and colonial politicians, and the leaders of the rebellion emerge as flesh-and-blood individuals, players trapped in a complex political game none of them could fully understand

Continuando a publicação da obra ensaística de Emília Viotti da Costa - coligida pela própria autora, num exercício agudo de resgate e seleção de textos publicados ao longo de décadas -, a Editora Unesp apresenta agora este Brasil: história, textos e contextos. Em projeto iniciado com A dialética invertida e outros ensaios (2014), que reúne textos exemplares do percurso da autora em sua trajetória historiográfica, avança-se agora com ensaios escolhidos para cobrir um variado espectro temático que vai da independência do Brasil à crise mundial, cujos ecos ainda são sentidos e enfrentados hoje. A variedade temática do livro, que extrapola o âmbito nacional e trata de assuntos de interesse global, com especial relevo para o continente americano, deixa patente a importância dos contextos para qualquer análise histórica. Dessa maneira, esta coletânea visita tópicos da história do Brasil desde o século XIX e enseja reflexões sobre os elementos circunstantes, ao mesmo tempo que permite nova profundidade no contato com a obra da autora. Engrossando o caldo do debate historiográfico e dando-lhe saboroso toque biográfico, vêm ao final deste volume entrevistas e depoimentos concedidos pela autora, nos quais ela relata seu próprio percurso e comenta temas que lhe são caros, completando o painel ambicionado pelo livro e inserindo a própria autora como ser atuante em seu tempo e sua história
