Reviews

"Splendidly researched and argued . . . Essential."--Choice
Winner of the Outstanding Academic Title for 2018 award sponsored by Choice
"Drawing on an impressive array of sources, Chopra succeeds admirably in showing how the confrontation between the forces of slavery and anti-slavery significantly shaped the gripping history of the Trelawney Maroons."--Barry Gaspar, Duke University
"In tracing the Maroons' itinerant encounter with slave owners, freedmen, empire builders, and African peoples, Chopra adds new complexity to the story of black freedom in the Revolutionary Era." --Miranda Spieler, The American University of Paris
