Book Description: "Highly recommended." —Choice “Meticulously researched . . . will provoke thought and discussion on the relationship between the peculiar institution and diplomacy in this important and growing field of study.” —H-Net “In this brilliant, stunning book, Horne shows us how the issue of slavery still intrudes upon our national discussions."—Ishmael Reed, John D. MacArthur Fellow Throughout the history of the early republic, many African Americans viewed Britain, an early advocate of abolitionism and emancipator of its own slaves, as a powerful ally in their resistance to slavery in the Americas. This allegiance was far-reaching, from the Caribbean to outposts in North America to Canada. In turn, the British welcomed and actively recruited both fugitive and free African Americans, arming them and employing them in military engagements throughout the Atlantic World, as the British sought to maintain a foothold in the Americas following the Revolution. In this path-breaking book, Horne rewrites the history of slave resistance by placing it for the first time in the context of military and diplomatic wrangling between Britain and the United States. Painstakingly researched and full of revelations, Negro Comrades of the Crown is among the first book-length studies to highlight the Atlantic origins of the Civil War. Gerald Horne is Moores Professor of History and African-American Studies at the University of Houston. His books include The Deepest South: The United States, Brazil, and the African Slave Trade and Race War!: White Supremacy and the Japanese Attack on the British Empire (both available from NYU Press).

Book Description: Argues that Paule Marshall’s work collectively constitutes a multigenerational saga of the African diaspora across centuries and continents. From Brown Girl, Brownstones (1959) to The Fisher King (2000), Paule Marshall’s novels, novellas, and short stories include a rich cast of unforgettable men, women, and children who forge spiritual as well as emotional and geographical paths toward their ancestors. In this, the first critical study to address all of Marshall’s fiction, Moira Ferguson argues that Marshall’s work collectively constitutes a multigenerational saga of the African diaspora across centuries and continents. In creating a space for her characters’ interrupted lives and those of their elders and ancestors, Ferguson argues, Marshall trains a spotlight on slavery’s wake and engages her fiction in the service of healing deep global wounds. “In sophisticated yet accessible discussions, Ferguson places Marshall’s work in a variety of contexts that are at the center of diasporic and postcolonial studies. By producing this comprehensive examination of Marshall’s fiction, she captures the way in which Marshall not only writes about diasporic experiences but, through the interconnected themes of her novels, is crafting a diasporic saga on the subject.” — Sharon M. Harris, author of Dr. Mary Walker: An American Radical, 1832–1919
