Etude
 
The impact of the French and Haitian revolutions on slave societies of the Greater Caribbean.

This volume examines several slave societies in the Greater Caribbean to illustrate the pervasive and multi-layered impact of the revolutionary age on the region. Built precariously on the exploitation of slave labor, organized according to the doctrine of racial discrimination, the plantation colonies were particularly vulnerable to the message of the French Revolution, which proved all the more potent because it coincided with the emergence of the antislavery movement in the Atlantic world and interacted with local traditions of resistance among the region's slaves, free coloreds, and white colonists.

David Barry Gaspar, Professor of History at Duke University, is the author of Bondmen and Rebels, co-editor of More Than Chattel, and author of many articles about the African diaspora.

David Patrick Geggus, Professor of History at the University of Florida, is the author of Hatian Revolutionary Studies (IU Press) and Slavery, War, and Revolution and of more than 60 scholarly articles concerning slavery and the Caribbean.
