Strange New Land - Africans in Colonial America (Paperback): Peter H. Wood Strange New Land - Africans in Colonial America (Paperback)
Peter H. Wood
R338 Discovery Miles 3 380 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Engaging and accessibly written, Strange New Land explores the history of slavery and the struggle for freedom before the United States became a nation. Beginning with the colonization of North America, Peter Wood documents the transformation of slavery from a brutal form of indentured servitude to a full-blown system of racial domination. Strange New Land focuses on how Africans survived this brutal process--and ultimately shaped the contours of American racial slavery through numerous means, including:

Mastering English and making it their own

Converting to Christianity and transforming the religion

Holding fast to Islam or combining their spiritual beliefs with the faith of their masters

Recalling skills and beliefs, dances and stories from the Old World, which provided a key element in their triumphant story of survival

Listening to talk of liberty and freedom, of the rights of man and embracing it as a fundamental right--even petitioning colonial administrators and insisting on that right.

Against the troubling backdrop of American slavery, Strange New Land surveys black social and cultural life, superbly illustrating how such a diverse group of people from the shores of West and Central Africa became a community in North America.

Powhatan's Mantle - Indians in the Colonial Southeast, Revised and Expanded Edition (Paperback, Revised And Expanded Ed):... Powhatan's Mantle - Indians in the Colonial Southeast, Revised and Expanded Edition (Paperback, Revised And Expanded Ed)
Gregory A. Waselkov; Introduction by Peter H. Wood, M. Thomas Hatley
R646 R534 Discovery Miles 5 340 Save R112 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Considered a classic study of southeastern Indians, "Powhatan's Mantle" demonstrates how ethnohistory, demography, archaeology, anthropology, and cartography can be brought together in fresh and meaningful ways to illuminate life in the early South. In a series of provocative original essays, a dozen leading scholars show how diverse Native Americans interacted with newcomers from Europe and Africa during the three hundred years of dramatic change beginning in the early sixteenth century.
For this new and expanded edition, the original contributors have revisited their subjects to offer further insights based on years of additional scholarship. The book includes four new essays, on calumet ceremonialism, social diversity in French Louisiana, the gendered nature of Cherokee agriculture, and the ideology of race among Creek Indians. The result is a volume filled with detailed information and challenging, up-to-date reappraisals reflecting the latest interdisciplinary research, ranging from Indian mounds and map symbolism to diplomatic practices and social structure, written to interest fellow scholars and informed general readers.

    <i>Near Andersonville</i> - Winslow Homer's Civil War (Hardcover): Peter H. Wood Near Andersonville - Winslow Homer's Civil War (Hardcover)
    Peter H. Wood
    R515 Discovery Miles 5 150 Out of stock

    The admired American painter Winslow Homer rose to national attention during the Civil War. But one of his most important early images remained unknown for a century. The renowned artist is best known for depicting ships and sailors, hunters and fishermen, rural vignettes and coastal scenes. Yet he also created some of the first serious black figures in American art. Near Andersonville (1865-66) is the earliest and least known of these impressive images. Peter Wood, a leading expert on Homer's images of blacks, reveals the long-hidden story of this remarkable Civil War painting. His brisk narrative locates the picture in southwest Georgia in August 1864 and provides its military and political context. Wood underscores the agony of the Andersonville prison camp and highlights a huge but little-known cavalry foray ordered by General Sherman as he laid siege to Atlanta. Homer's image takes viewers "behind enemy lines" to consider the utter failure of "Stoneman's Raid" from the perspective of an enslaved black Southerner. By examining the interplay of symbolic elements, Wood reveals a picture pregnant with meaning. He links it to Abraham Lincoln's presidential campaign of 1864 and underscores the enduring importance of Homer's thoughtful black woman. The painter adopted a bottom-up perspective on slavery and emancipation that most scholars needed another century to discover. By integrating art and history, Wood's provocative study gives us a fresh vantage point on Homer's early career, the struggle to end slavery, and the dramatic closing years of the Civil War.
