Avengers of the New World by Laurent Dubois
Book DescriptionThe first and only successful slave revolution in the Americas began in 1791 when thousands of brutally exploited slaves rose up against their masters on Saint-Domingue, the most profitable colony in the 18th Century Atlantic world. The slave insurgents forced the French administrators of the colony to emancipate them, a decision ratified by revolutionary Paris in 1794. This victory was a stunning challenge to the order of master/slave relations throughout the Americas, including the southern United States.

Banjo, Hardback (March 2016)
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.
Haiti, Paperback (January 2013)
Maligned and misunderstood, the nation has long been blamed by many for its own wretchedness. In this book, the author depicts the isolation and impoverishment that followed the 1804 rebellion: the crushing indemnities imposed by the former French rulers, which initiated a cycle of debt.
Soccer Empire, Paperback (February 2011)
Illuminates the connections between soccer empire and sport by tracing the story of World Cup soccer, from the Cup's French origins in the 1930s to Africa and the Caribbean and back again. This title recounts the lives of two of soccer's most electrifying players, Zidane and his outspoken teammate, Lilian Thuram.
Origins of the Black Atlantic, Paperback (August 2009)» View all books by Laurent Dubois
Between 1492 and 1820, about two-thirds of the people who crossed the Atlantic to the Americas were Africans. Over the years, however, huge strides have been made in the study of the history of slavery and emancipation in the Atlantic world. This collection brings together some of the key contributions to this growing body of scholarship.
