On the evening of August 21, 1831, Nat Turner and six men launched their infamous rebellion against slaveholders. The rebels swept through Southampton County, Virginia, recruiting slaves to their ranks and killing nearly five dozen whites-more than had ever been killed in any slave revolt in American history. Although a hastily assembled group of whites soon suppressed the violence, its repercussions had far-reaching consequences. In The Land Shall Be Deluged in Blood, Patrick H. Breen uses the dramatic events in Southampton to explore the terrible choices faced by members of the local black community as they considered joining the rebels, a choice that would likely cost them their lives, supporting their masters, or somehow avoiding taking sides. Combining fast-paced narrative with rigorous analysis, Breen shows how, as whites regained control, slaveholders created an account of the revolt that saved their slaves from white retribution, the most dangerous threat facing the slaveholders' human property. By probing the stories slaveholders told that allowed them to get non-slaveholders to protect slave property, The Land Shall Be Deluged in Blood reveals something surprising about both the fragility and power of slavery.

"Groundbreaking look at slaves as commodities through every phase of life, from birth to death and beyond, in early America The Price for Their Pound of Flesh is the first book to explore the economic value of enslaved people through every phase of their lives--including from before birth to after death--in the American domestic slave trades. Covering the full "life cycle" (including preconception, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, the senior years, and death), historian Daina Berry shows the lengths to which slaveholders would go to maximize profits. She draws from over ten years of research to explore how enslaved people responded to being appraised, bartered, and sold. By illuminating their lives, Berry ensures that the individuals she studies are regarded as people, not merely commodities. Analyzing the depth of this monetization of human property will change the way we think about slavery, reparations, capitalism, and nineteenth-century medical education"--

حدث لم يسبق له مثيل في عالم النشر على الصعيد العالمي: للمرة الأولى، يكتب سجينٌ يومياته وهو لا يزال رهن الاعتقال في غوانتانامو. +++ منذ عام 2002 وحتى هذه اللحظة، يقضي محمدو ولد صلاحي أيامه سجيناً في المعسكر الاحتجازي في خليج غوانتانامو بكوبا. وطوال هذه السنوات لم توجّه إليه الولايات المتحدة أيَّ نوع من التُّهم. أصدر قاضٍ من المحكمة الفيدرالية قراراً يقضي بإطلاق سراحه في مارس 2010، ولكنّ الحكومة الأميركية عارضت قراره ذاك، ولا توجد الآن أية إشارات في الأفق تدلّ على أنّ الولايات المتحدة لديها نية لإطلاق سراحه. +++ في السنة الثالثة من أًسْره، بدأ صلاحي بكتابة يومياته، واصفاً فيها حياته قبل مغادرته بيته، في 28 نوفمبر عام 2001، واختفائه في سجن أميركي، ومن ثم «رحلته اللانهائية حول العالم» سجناً وتحقيقاً، وأخيراً حياته اليومية كسجين في غوانتانامو. يومياته ليست مجرد سجلّ حيّ لإخفاق العدالة، بل وذكريات شخصية رهيبة تتّسم بالعمق والسخرية السوداء واللطف المدهش.
