This abridgement of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of flourishing slave society.
Richard Price is the author of twelve books, including an earlier work on the Saramaka people, the award-winning First Time: The Historical Vision of an Afro-American People. He is coeditor, with Sally Price, of John Gabriel Steadman's Narrative of a Five Year Expedition against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam. He has taught at Stanford, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Minnesota, and the University of Paris.
This abridged edition includes about half of Stedman's original text and over a third of the original plates... The text itself is made more readable by moderate editorial changes in spelling, punctuation, and word order... A well-accomplished abridgment of the editors' own 1988 edition.
