Promotional Information

Chosen as an Outstanding Academic Book of 1997 by "Choice".


"[A] superb scholarly investigation of the so-called 'Freedom Principle'...Strongly based on archival research, this well-written study deserves wide readership."--CHOICE "[G]rounded firmly in archival research and a comprehensive survey of secondary material."--History "The book is a good example of the wealth of information that can be gleaned from an examination of legal cases. Peabody's scholarly monograph is a welcome addition to what is still a narrow shelf of books and articles about race and slavery in eighteenth-century France."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History "Peabody has produced a solid piece of legal and social hostory...[T]his is an impressively researched, exhaustively documented book, a model of how to exploit archival and legal primary sources. It should prove to be the definitive study of the slavery question in mainland France prior to the French Revolution."--American Historical Review
