For over four hundred years, thousands of African men and women were taken from their homeland and transported across the world to be sold into slavery.

The history of this startling and horrific period is perennially important, and recent scholarship has sought to uncover the experiences of the slaves themselves in order to uncover the voices of its many victims. "Slavery and Africa in the Caribbean" analyses the written sources which have survived, demonstrating how many Africans coped by adopting a flexible identity in order to negotiate the cultural differences in African, European and Islamic systems of slavery.

An important work based on Jamaican and African archival sources, this book will appeal to students and scholars who are interested in slavery, gender, identity, religion, colonialism and the African diaspora.
