New York: Columbia University Press, 1943.
First edition. Review copy, as stamped on ffep, with publication info. 409 pp. Green cloth with gilt lettering. Fine condition. No jacket. Clean text, sturdy binding, and sharp gilt. An excellent copy of the best-known work of the blacklisted Communist historian, based on his doctoral dissertation. Along with C.L.R. James' 1938 History of Negro Revolt, it helped to radically reinterpret African-American slave revolts as explicitly political acts worthy of academic study and popular remembrance. Item #160503006
