Sweet Negotiations: Sugar, Slavery, and Plantation Agriculture in Early Barbados

By Russell R. Menard

Charlottesville: University Of Virginia Press, 2006. First edition. Hardcover. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 22.5 x 14.5 cm. Octavo. 181 pages. Blue cloth in mylar protected dust jacket. From the dust jacket flap: "Intending at first simply to do further research on the mid-seventeenth-century "sugar revolution" in Barbados, Russell Menard traveled to the island. But once there, he quickly found many discrepancies between the historical understanding of the way in which this "revolution" fueled the institution of slavery and the actual, quotidian, records documenting the prominence of slavery on the island even before sugar spurred its economic growth. In Sweet Negotiations: Sugar, Slavery, and Plantation Agriculture in Early Barbados, Menard reveals that black slavery's emergence in Barbados actually preceded the rise of sugar; in doing so he both reverses the long-held understanding of slavery as a consequence of the islandís economic boom and repositions the impact that this surge of slavery had on Americaís slave trade."
