Crossing Boundaries
Comparative History of Black People in Diaspora

Edited by Darlene Clark Hine and Jacqueline McLeod

Suggests new paradigms for the study of Blacks in diaspora.

The 18 papers in this volume are original, clearly written, and of consistently high quality. Organized in four parts-`Comparative Diaspora Historiography,' `Identity and Culture,' `Domination and Resistance,' and `Geo-Social History and the Atlantic World'-these essays complement each other in a way that makes the whole even more valuable than the sum of the parts."
-Choice

The essays assembled in Crossing Boundaries reflect the international dimensions, commonalities, and discontinuities in the histories of diasporan communities of color. People of African descent in the New World (the United States, Latin America, and the Caribbean) share a common set of experiences: domination and resistance, slavery and emancipation, the pursuit of freedom, and struggle against racism. No single explanation can capture the varied experiences of Black people in diaspora.

Crossing Boundaries probes differences embedded in Black ethnicities and helps to discover and to weave into a new understanding the threads of experience, culture, and identity across diasporas. Contributors include Allison Blakely, Kim Butler, Frederick Cooper, George Fredrickson, David Barry Gaspar, Jack P. Green, Thomas Holt, Earl Lewis, Elliott Skinner, and Rosalyn Terborg-Penn.

Darlene Clark Hine, John A. Hannah Professor of History at Michigan State University, is author of Hine Sight: Black Women and the Re-Construction of American History (Indiana University Press); co-author of A Shining Thread of Hope: The History of Black Women in America and The African American Odyssey; and co-editor of More Than Chattel: Black Women and Slavery in the Americas and A Question of Manhood: A Reader in Black Men's History and Masculinity (both Indiana University Press).
