  • The Banjo by Laurent Dubois
    The Banjo (English, Hardback) Laurent Dubois

    American slaves drew on memories of African musical traditions to construct instruments from carved-out gourds covered with animal skin. Providing a sense of rootedness, solidarity, and consolation, banjo picking became an essential part of black plantation life, and its unmistakable sound remains versatile and enduring today, Laurent Dubois shows.

  • A Colony of Citizens by Laurent Dubois
    A Colony of Citizens (English, Paperback) Laurent Dubois

    The idea of universal rights is often understood as the product of Europe, but as Dubois demonstrates, it was shaped by the struggle over slavery in the French Caribbean. He examines this revolution by focusing on Guadeloupe, where, in the early 1790s, insurgents on the island fought for equality and formed alliances with besieged Republicans.
