The Amistad Rebellion: An Atlantic Odyssey of Slavery & Freedom / Marcus Rediker

Hardback, 330 pages

Presenting one of the most famous instances of rebellion in the history of slavery within the United States. After native Africans rebelled on the slave ship L'Amistad where they were being held captive, they took over the ship but were then recaptured by the US. After legal proceedings and defying the era's politics they were eventually freed and returned to Africa. 

In this book author Marcus Rediker reclaims the rebellion for its true proponents: the African rebels who risked death to stake a claim for freedom. Using newly discovered evidence, Rediker reframes the story to show how a small group of men won an epic battle against Spanish and American slaveholder governments. He reaches back to Africa to find the rebels roots, narrates their transatlantic journey all the while with a vivid description full of drama and emtotion.
