New Perspectives on Slavery and Colonialism in the Caribbean

Stephen Small co-edited with Marten Schalkwijk | African American Studies | Amrit Publishers, 2012

Analysis of slavery in the Caribbean, including variations in the nature, functioning and legacies of slavery across territories with different imperial masters – including the English, Spanish and French – has a long history and has produced a very substantial literature. There is far less work on the Dutch Caribbean, including Suriname. This reader makes a contribution to increasing our attention on the Dutch Caribbean, as well as its relationship to institutional practices and themes common elsewhere in the Caribbean.
