Abstract

This wide ranging collection spanning the field of Caribbean and Atlantic world slavery, history and historiography, human and physical geography, archeology and cultural studies, has been inspired by the work of Barry Higman in whose honor it is being published. The contributors use a variety of sources and methodologies to deal with topics which intersect with Higman's overall work and research interests. These topics include Caribbean archeology; urban townscape and landscape; slavery and technology; slave demography; the varied contexts of slave and free labor; gender agricultural regimes on non-sugar properties, resistance; the slave trade, compensation and manumission; adjustments to emancipation and contemporary Caribbean society. Caribbean and wider Atlantic World history are growing fields in all major universities and these essays will be of interests to all who are engaged in the project of recovering Caribbean history.
