Item description for Slaves Who Abolished Slavery: Blacks in Rebellion by Richard Hart...

This classic and controversial volume provides extensive coverage of slave resistance and revolt in Jamaica. This new reissue is now available worldwide. Hart's coverage of the slave rebellions and revolts in Jamaica documents that slavery did not eradicate the intellectual and creative powers of slaves; in fact, a great deal survived and was created by the slaves themselves. Hart avoids polemics and his most important point is that the Jamaican rebels forced the British government to reset the agenda for emancipation and the slaves gained their freedom sooner than anticipated. The work is an in-depth accessible study of the Maroon Wars and of the many slave revolts that were a standard feature of the Jamaican struggle against slavery. Hart pulls the veil from an aspect of West Indian history that has been largely ignored - if not consciously suppressed - the slaves' own struggles to abolish slavery. This culmination of his life work and this long-awaited reprint is now widely available to a new generation of students and researchers.
