More Than Chattel: Black Women and Slavery in the Americas

DESCRIPTION

". . . a much-needed volume on a neglected topic that is of great interest to scholars of women, slavery, and African American history." --Drew Faust

Gender was a decisive force in shaping slave society. Slave men's experiences differed from those of slave women, who were exploited both in reproductive as well as productive capacities. The women did not figure prominently in revolts, because they engaged in less confrontational resistance, emphasizing creative struggle to survive dehumanization and abuse.
