"Stimulating, incisive, insightful, sometimes revisionist, this volume is required reading for historians of comparative colonialism in an age of revolution." -Choice

"[An] eminently original and intellectually exciting book." -William and Mary Quarterly

This volume examines several slave societies in the Greater Caribbean to illustrate the pervasive and multi-layered impact of the revolutionary age on the region. Built precariously on the exploitation of slave labor, organized according to the doctrine of racial discrimination, the plantation colonies were particularly vulnerable to the message of the French Revolution, which proved all the more potent because it coincided with the emergence of the antislavery movement in the Atlantic world and interacted with local traditions of resistance among the region's slaves, free coloreds, and white colonists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"... excellent ... While some anthologies suffer from unevenness and lack a coherent center, A Turbulent Time is a series of nine well-written essays whose whole is the sum of its parts." The Journal of American History "Anyone who wants to thoroughly understand the period in question should own this book." Caribbean Historical & Genealogical Journal "Stimulating, incisive, insightful, sometimes revisionist, this volume is required reading for historians of comparative colonialism in an age of revolution." Choice "All of the essays are beautiflly crafted and researched and analytically rigorous. It is destined to become an instant classic, inspiring historians of slavery to even greater heights of research and analysis." H-Net Reviews
