Review:

"Gripping...Superb...As Marcus Rediker's new book reminds us, the place of the [Amistad] rebellion in popular memory hasn't always been secure."--The Nation

"The great strength of this work--aside from rediker's vivd style as a writer and meticulous research--is that he brings the Amistad Africans back to center stage where they have often been pushed to the side."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Vividly drawn...this stunning book honors the achievement of the captive Africans who fought for--and won--their freedom."--The Philadelphia Tribune

"Spectacularly researched and fluidly composed, this latest study offers some much needed perspective on a critical yet often overlooked event in America's history."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A totally enthralling account of the Amistad rebellion and its place in the broader American story of revolt against a great threat to liberty."--Booklist (starred review)

"A first-rate example of history told from the bottom up."--Kirkus (starred review)

"Rediker takes a fresh approach to the Amistad rebellion by focusing on the Africans who revolted rather than on the American political and judicial response, which takes the central place in most previous works."--Library Journal

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Using newly discovered evidence, Marcus Rediker reframes the story of the Amistad rebellion (1839) to show how a small group of courageous men fought and won an epic battle against Spanish and American slaveholders and their governments. He reaches back to Africa to find the rebels' roots, narrates their cataclysmic transatlantic journey, and unfolds a prison story of great drama and emotion. Featuring vividly drawn portraits of the Africans, their captors, and their abolitionist allies, he shows how the rebels captured the popular imagination and helped to inspire and build a movement within a grand global struggle between slavery and freedom. As a handful of self-emancipated Africans steered their own course to freedom, they opened a way for millions to follow. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781781682500
