Summary This title brings to life the unique contribution by French women during the early 19th century, a key period in the history of colonialism and slavery. The book enriches our understanding of French and Atlantic history in the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years when Haiti was menaced with the re-establishment of slavery and when class, race, and gender identities were being renegotiated
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 161-171) and index
