Um resgate da história dos quilombos no Brasil e seus desdobramentos até os dias de hoje é o tema deste livro, que nos mostra uma situação mais atual e complexa do que podemos imaginar. Hoje, espalhadas por todo o Brasil, vemos surgir comunidades negras rurais e remanescentes de quilombos. Elas são a continuidade de um processo mais longo da história da escravidão e das primeiras décadas da pós-emancipação. Não se trata de um passado imóvel, como aquilo que sobrou de um passado remoto. As comunidades de fugitivos da escravidão produziram histórias complexas de ocupação agrária, criação de territórios, cultura material e imaterial próprias baseadas no parentesco e no uso e manejo coletivo da terra. O desenvolvimento das comunidades negras contemporâneas é bastante complexo, com seus processos de identidade e luta por cidadania. A história dos quilombos - e seus desdobramentos - do passado e do presente é o tema deste livro.

Na história da resistência escrava nas Américas, o Brasil tem o maior número de povoamentos de escravos fugitivos, conhecidos como quilombos ou mocambos. Nenhuma outra área escravista teve tantos. Este livro, além da participação dos africanos, esclarece os contatos e o papel dos indígenas e dos quilombolas, tanto nas relações de aliança e assistência mútua como nas de guerra. Esta obra consolida o autor como principal especialista em quilombos no Brasil. Baseia-se em pesquisas que cobrem diversas regiões brasileiras e suas fronteiras - Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Mato Grosso, Bahia, e sobretudo Grão-Pará e Maranhão. Flávio Gomes interpreta os documentos à luz de um conhecimento atualizado em vasta bibliografia nacional e estrangeira, cuja leitura ajuda a comparar os quilombos brasileiros entre si e com aqueles de outras regiões da Afro-América, proporcionando uma perspectiva mais hemisférica, menos provinciana do tema.

Em 'Histórias de quilombolas,' Flávio dos Santos Gomes retrata o mundo interligado das senzalas e dos quilombos no Rio de Janeiro do século XIX. Resultado de pesquisa primorosa feita em arquivos policiais e judiciários, o livro descreve com detalhes as ligações dos quilombolas com grupos livres e com os cativos, mostrando como os fugitivos abalavam o equilíbrio das relações escravistas. A primeira parte do livro conta como, no século XIX, os quilombos de Iguaçu, no recôncavo da Guanabara, resistiram à repressão das autoridades. Taberneiros, pequenos negociantes e escravos comerciavam com eles e os informavam sobre as expedições repressoras. A segunda parte examina a 'insurreição quilombola' de Manoel Congo, em Vassouras, em 1838, de que participaram cativos africanos e 'crioulos' (nascidos no Brasil), trabalhadores, domésticos e lavradores - tanto homens como mulheres. O final reúne histórias dos anos 1870 e 1880 que mostram como a crise de legitimidade do escravismo potencializou o movimento de libertação dos escravos.

Plantation sites, especially those in the southeastern United States, have long dominated the archaeological study of slavery. These antebellum estates, however, are not representative of the range of geographic locations and time periods in which slavery has occurred. As archaeologists have begun to investigate slavery in more diverse settings, the need for a broader interpretive framework is now clear. The Archaeology of Slavery: A Comparative Approach to Captivity and Coercion, edited by Lydia Wilson Marshall, develops an interregional and cross-temporal framework for the interpretation of slavery. Contributors consider how to define slavery, identify it in the archaeological record, and study it as a diachronic process from enslavement to emancipation and beyond. Essays cover the potential material representations of slavery, slave owners’ strategies of coercion and enslaved people’s methods of resisting this coercion, and the legacies of slavery as confronted by formerly enslaved people and their descendants. Among the peoples, sites, and periods examined are a late nineteenth-century Chinese laborer population in Carlin, Nevada; a castle slave habitation at San Domingo and a more elite trading center at nearby Juffure in the Gambia; two eighteenth-century plantations in Dominica; Benin’s Hueda Kingdom in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; plantations in Zanzibar; and three fugitive slave sites on Mauritius—an underground lava tunnel, a mountain, and a karst cave. This essay collection seeks to analyze slavery as a process organized by larger economic and social forces with effects that can be both durable and wide-ranging. It presents a comparative approach that significantly enriches our understanding of slavery.

Scholarship on the formation of the Atlantic world through contributions from Europe, Africa and the Americas has grown in recent decades. The results offer new understandings of the transformations in ethnic and religious identity faced by peoples from all the surrounding continents. Long used by scholars of Jewish studies, records from the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions have become an important source for historians of Africans and Amerindians in the Iberian colonial orbit. Using these and other materials, this book explores race, religion and politics among three newly and incompletely Christianized groups in the seventeenth century: Judeoconversos, Afroiberians and Amerindians. This fresh cross-cultural analysis brings these differing trajectories into dialogue.

Early Brazil presents a collection of original sources, many published for the first time in English and some never before published in any language, that illustrates the process of conquest, colonization, and settlement in Brazil. The volume emphasizes the actions and interactions of the indigenous peoples, Portuguese, and Africans in the formation of the first extensive plantation colony based on slavery in the Americas, and it also includes documents that reveal the political, social, religious, and economic life of the colony. Original documents on early Brazilian history are difficult to find in English, and this collection will serve the interests of undergraduate students, as well as graduate students, who seek to make comparisons or to understand the history of Portuguese expansion.

Besides searching book reviews, an interview with the writer Tijan M. Sallah, a full report on the 6th Ethiopian International Film Festival, and a stimulating selection of creative writing (including a showcase of recent South African poetry), this issue of Matatu offers general essays on African women’s poetry, anglophone Cameroonian literature, and Zimbabwean fiction of the Gukurahundi period, along with studies of J.M. Coetzee, Kalpana Lalji, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Aminata Sow Fall, Wole Soyinka, and Yvonne Vera. The bulk of this issue, however, is given over to coverage of cultural and sociological topics from North Africa to the Cape, ranging from cultural identity in contemporary North Africa, two contributions on Kenyan naming ceremonies and initiation songs, and three studies of the function of Shona and Ndebele proverbs, to national history in Zimbabwean autobiography, traditional mourning dress of the Akans of Ghana, and the precolonial origins of traditional leadership in South Africa.
