Stedman's Surinam Life in an Eighteenth-Century Slave Society Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This abridgement of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of flourishing slave society.

Book News Annotation:

Editors Richard Price and Sally Price make available to students and others an abridged, modernized edition of Narrative of a five years expedition against the revolted Negroes of Surinam, written in 1790 (and published in a complete, critical edition in 1988).
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
