Reviews

"Sayers and the maroons he studies force us to ask questions about the definition of liberty. . . . Sayers's perspectives are fresh and brilliant."--Midcontinental Journal of Archaeology

"These communities represent a largely unrecognized, alternative declaration of independence. They are a part of world history that is truly revolutionary."--Mark P. Leone, author of The Archaeology of Liberty in an American Capital

"Lays the foundation for a predictive model that may fruitfully be applied to future investigations of communities of resistance, radical praxis and alternative modes of production."--Social Anthropology

"The most comprehensive archaeological research completed on the Dismal Swamp area. Highly recommended."--Choice
