Shelves: atlantic-slavery, ica. The prose is dry, but direct and appropriately sparse. These changes occurred just as the Spanish conquest of the Caribbean islands and the Portuguese settlement of the Brazilian subcontinent was getting under way and thus opened the American market for African slaves.

A leading authority on Latin American slavery has produced a major and original work on the subject. Covering not only Spanish but also Portuguese and French regions, and encompassing the latest research on the plantation system as well as on mining and the urban experience, the book brings together the recent findings on demography, the slave trade, the construction of the slave community and Afro-American culture. The book also sheds new light on the processes of accomodation and rebellion and the experience of emancipation. Klein first traces the evolution of slavery and forced labor systems in Europe, Africa, and America, and then depicts the life and culture which some twelve million slaves transported from Africa over five centuries experiences in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. Particular emphasis is on the evolution of the sugar plantation economy, the single largest user of African slave labor. The book examines attempts of the African and American-born slaves to create a viable and autonomous culture, including their adaption of European languages, religions, and even kinship systems to their own needs. Klein also describes the type and intensity of slave rebellions. Finally the book considers the important and differing role of the "free colored" under slavery, noting the unique situation of the Brazilian free colored as well as the unusual mobility of the free colored in the French West Indies. The book concludes with a look at the post-emancipation integration patterns in the different societies, analyzing the relative success of the ex-slaves in obtaining control over land and escaping from the old plantation regimes.

Herbert Klein’s book is an interesting and detailed comparative study of African slavery in the Spanish-, Portuguese-, and French-speaking areas of America and the Dutch and English Caribbean colonies. It also compares the slavery in North America, and much of his analysis is cincerns issues also relevant to North America.

Klein first discusses recent social theories of slavery then describes the evolution of the slave trade and American slavery. He emphasises the distinction between slavery and other types of servitude. The use of Africans as chattel slaves was based on Roman legal structures that western societies adopted and adapted. Although African peoples had slaves, their use was organised in a totally different way than was New World slavery.

After this sociological and legal introduction, the core of his study is economics of slavery in Brazil and the Caribbean islands in the 18th and 19th centuries, when the sugar plantation was at its height. Despite the focus on the plantation, he makes it clear that slavery was ubiquitous throughout Latin America and the Caribbean from the 16th to 19th century in a range of other employments including mining, crafts and domestic service. The use of slaves was limited only by their price: until the mid-19th century ethical considerations hardly arose.

Klein analyses the structure of slavery, the economics of plantation and also the social history of Latin American slaves: their family life, communities and the Afro-American culture they created: a blend of African and adopted western institutions. His last five chapters deal with the themes of urban slavery, slave resistance and rebellion, the role of freed slaves in slave-holding societies and emancipation.

This is a work of synthesis intended for students and general readers, not new research. It does challenge some common misconceptions. One was the dominance of a "triangular trade" of European manufactures, African slaves, and American sugar, as many slave ships carried little cargo. Another blames the predominance of male African slaves on a lack of American demand for women rather than, as Klein suggests, the greater value of female slaves in Africa societies. It is well organised and clearly written, with a bibliography essay and notes for further study although, despite its concentration the economics of slavery, just three small statistical tables in an appendix.

I read this book because I had to, although it had good information, was not up my alley. I personally would not have read it if I wasn't forced to. Sorry...
