Cultivation and Culture

Labor and the Shaping of Slave Life in the Americas

Book - 1993
Rate this:
So central was labour in the lives of African-American slaves that it has often been taken for granted, with little attention given to the type of work that slaves did and the circumstances surrounding it. Cultivation and Culture brings together essays by leading scholars of slavery - historians, anthropologists and sociologists - to explore when, where and how slaves laboured in growing the New World's great staples and how this work shaped the institution of slavery and the lives of African-American slaves.
