This comparative study of slave emancipation contains case studies involving Britain, Louisiana, Cuba, and Africa. Rebecca J. Scott's contribution, "Fault Lines, Color Lines, and Party Lines," aspires "not to establish a categorical contrast between Louisiana and Cuba in terms of racism and antiracism, or silence and activism, but rather to trace shifting alliances and divisions. There are points of intersection and divergence between patterns of livelihood and resistance in the cane fields of central Cuba and in the bayou country of Louisiana."
