ALINE HELG PDF

Her sweeping view of resistance and struggle covers more than three centuries, from early colonization to the American and Haitian revolutions, Spanish American independence, and abolition in the British Caribbean. While recognizing the powerful forces supporting slavery, Helg articulates four primary liberation strategies: flight and marronage; manumission by legal document; military service, for men, in exchange for promised emancipation; and revolt—along with a willingness to exploit any weakness in the domination system. Helg looks at such actions at both individual and community levels and in the context of national and international political movements. Bringing together the broad currents of liberal abolitionism with an original analysis of forms of manumission and marronage, Slave No More deepens our understanding of how enslaved men, women, and even children contributed to the slow demise of slavery.

Unravels the evidence to provide new insight into how slaves over those three centuries pursued freedom. A valuable resource. It distills the vast historical interpretation of slavery and freedom across the Americas and makes available to students and scholars alike the continuity and rupture of slave societies as enslaved people expanded their opportunities to pursue freedom.

More than a history of slave resistance, Slave No More is a lucid and highly original analysis of how a proportion of enslaved populations across the Americas gained their freedom independently of the system-wide emancipations that ended the institution in the nineteenth century.

It will be useful in teaching, and even specialists in the comparative study of slavery are going to find surprises and new insights. By bringing together what is more traditionally understood as abolitionist or antislavery activism with an analysis of forms of manumission, marronage, and resistance, Helg helps us resituate our understanding of this broad history on a scale that covers just as much of the Caribbean and Latin America as it does North America.
