Reviews

An engaging, accessible, and masterly work.--R. Berleant-Schiller"Choice" (01/01/2011)
Drawing upon a lifetime of ethnographic fieldwork in the Caribbean region, Mintz arrives at bold conclusions about the societies and realities of our provocative, complex, and generally undervalued region.--Nicolette Bethel"Caribbean Review of Books" (07/01/2010)
In this engaging, delightfully readable and provocative work, Sidney Mintz distills a lifetime of pioneering research to illuminate the making of three Caribbean plantation societies and of the creolized cultures that challenged the slave system from within. The work seamlessly brings together history and anthropology, showcasing Mintz's impassioned and encyclopedic knowledge of the Caribbean. A must-read for all those interested in the history of slavery and the Atlantic world.--Laurent Dubois, Duke University
