Summary This volume is concerned with examining the histories of freed slaves in a variety of slave societies in the ancient and modern world, ranging from ancient Rome to the southern States of the US, the Caribbean, and Brazil to Africa in the aftermath of emancipation in the twentieth century. The aim of this work is to present a comparative forum for the study of freed people. By identifying what is separate and what is universal about freed people, it hopes to add to a better understanding of the role and impact of manumission and emancipation in different slave societies.
