"An important collection of 10 essays on the almost totally neglected subject of the freedman in North and South American slave societies that developed out of a symposium held at Johns Hopkins University in 1970... All of these essays furnish important insights into our understanding of racism and slave societies in the Americas. Much significance is attached to the ratios of freedmen to slaves; the statistical information alone is invaluable. All this and much more makes this book one that belongs in every college library."
