There are No Slaves in France: The Political Culture of Race and Slavery in the Ancien Régime
There Are No Slaves in France examines the paradoxical emergence of political antislavery and institutional racism in the century prior to the French Revolution. Sue Peabody shows how the political culture of late Bourbon France created ample opportunities for contestation over the meaning of freedom. Based on various archival sources, this work will be of interest not only to historians of slavery and France, but to scholars interested in the emergence of modern culture in the Atlantic world.
What people are saying - Write a review
Not enough well-written and researched books on 18th century slavery in France out there. This defiantly makes any historians book shelf if their concentration is France, colonization, slavery, or any philosophical shifts in history. Very Well done!!!
