There are No Slaves in France by Sue Peabody
Book DescriptionThere Are No Slaves in France examines the paradoxical emergence of political antislavery and institutional racism in the century prior to the French Revolution. Sue Peabody shows how the political culture of late Bourbon France created ample opportunities for contestation over the meaning of freedom. Based on various archival sources, this work will be of interest not only to historians of slavery and France, but to scholars interested in the emergence of modern culture in the Atlantic world.

Books By Author Sue Peabody
Slavery, Freedom and the Law in the Atlantic World, Paperback (June 2007)
During the era of revolution and emancipation in the north Atlantic, 'slavery' and 'freedom' were fluid and contested concepts. In this collection the authors introduce the voices of slaves, slave-holders, legislators, and others, who struggled to critique, overturn, justify, or simply describe the social order in which they found themselves.
There are No Slaves in France, Hardback (September 1996)» View all books by Sue Peabody
The repeated efforts by French slaves in France during the seventeenth and eighteenth century to legally seek their freedom left a rich tale of how the demand for freedom paradoxically leads to both the broadening of civil rights and the fostering of racial prejudice. Peabody tells this tale in a lively, informative, and anecdotal narrative.
