Universally revered as a political, military and social luminary of the late 18th and early 19th century, Toussaint is reexamined herein not in legendary terms but in the context of his pursuit of simple human dignity. Phillips illustrates Toussaint's best qualities through the colloquial English of a 19th Century abolitionist to a vast lay audience. The persistence of this landmark work lies firmly in the oration's power to humanize Toussaint. The human perspective is often lost in other works examining Toussaint due to their propensity to alternately deify or cast this remarkable man in tragic, almost Shakespearian terms. Eschewing the "noble savage" logic of his contemporaries, Phillips instead paints a broad image of Toussaint L'Ouverture the man, his place in history and his importance not just to negroes but to the whole of mankind regardless of sex, class or ethnic origin.

St. Lucian Creole (Kweyol) is a variety of Caribbean French- lexicon Creole spoken by a significant majority of the population of the state of St. Lucia in the Windward group of the Lesser Antilles. A distinctive characteristic of this Kweyol-English/English-Kweyol dictionary is the manner in which Mondesir's glosses treat St. Lucian and English on an equal footing. Mondesir does not record only the literal and concrete levels of meaning; he includes in his entries the fullness of the figurative value of the items, illustrating them with a rich provision of sample sentences and expressions. On a technical level, the examples in the dictionary also offer valuable data for those interested in the syntax of the language. Edited by L.D. Carrington.

The American Crucible furnishes a vivid and authoritative history of the rise and fall of slavery in the Americas. For over three centuries enslavement promoted the rise of capitalism in the Atlantic world. The New World became the crucible for a succession of fateful experiments in colonization, silver mining, plantation agriculture, racial enslavement, colonial rebellion, slave witness and slave resistance. Slave produce raised up empires, fostered new cultures of consumption and financed the breakthrough to an industrial order. Not until the stirrings of a revolutionary age in the 1780s was there the first public challenge to the ‘peculiar institution’. An anti-slavery alliance then set the scene for great acts of emancipation in Haiti in 1804, Britain in 1833–8, the United States in the 1860s, and Cuba and Brazil in the 1880s. In The American Crucible, Robin Blackburn argues that the anti-slavery movement forged many of the ideals we live by today. ‘The best treatment of slavery in the western hemisphere I know of. I think it should establish itself as a permanent pillar of the literature.’ Eric Hobsbawm From the Trade Paperback edition.
