The series solicits books that consider literature beyond strictly national and disciplinary frameworks, distinguished both by their historical grounding and their theoretical and conceptual strength. We seek studies that engage theory without losing touch with history and work historically without falling into uncritical positivism. FlashPoints aims for a broad audience within the humanities and the social sciences concerned with moments of cultural emergence and transformation. List of Illustrations. 1. Canine Warfare in the Circum-Caribbean.

Fear of French Negroes book. The Fear of French Negroes is an interdisciplinary study that explores how people of African descent responded to the collapse and reconsolidation of colonial life in the aftermath of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1845).

These stories move beyond a consideration of the well-documented anxiety insurgent blacks occasioned in slaveholding systems to refocus attention on the wide variety of strategic alliances they generated in their quests for freedom, equality and profit.

Sarah Johnson’s book about French negroes after the Haitian Revolution is far less concerned with the fear they engendered among white slave owners than about the emergence of competing inter-Americanisms (p. 5) in the years between 1790 and 1830. Rather than catalogue negative reactions to the Haitian Revolution, she sketches a set of transcolonial collaborations among free and enslaved.

The Fear of French Negroes is an interdisciplinary study that explores how people of African descent responded to the collapse and reconsolidation of colonial life in the aftermath of the Haitian Revolution (1791-1845). Using visual culture, popular music and dance, periodical literature, historical memoirs, and state papers, Sara E. Johnson examines the migration of people, ideas, and practices across imperial boundaries. Building on previous scholarship on black internationalism, she traces expressions of both aesthetic and experiential transcolonial black politics across the Caribbean world, including Hispaniola, Louisiana and the Gulf South, Jamaica, and Cuba. Johnson examines the lives and work of figures as diverse as armed black soldiers and privateers, female performers, and newspaper editors to argue for the existence of “competing inter-Americanisms” as she uncovers the struggle for unity amidst the realities of class, territorial, and linguistic diversity. These stories move beyond a consideration of the well-documented anxiety insurgent blacks occasioned in slaveholding systems to refocus attention on the wide variety of strategic alliances they generated in their quests for freedom, equality and profit.

Learned much about colonialism and its nuances in the Caribbean and more specifically Haiti.

This book offers a beautifully written literary-cultural-intellectual history of belonging and search for immanence via cultural production among nineteenth-century African-origin people in the Caribbean. I taught this book in my graduate course Postcolonial Americas, and fell in love with it. My students did as well. We spent three days on it. I was moved by the beauty in the writing, the development of the methodology, the ability to think creatively about the archive (or lack of one), and the author's desire to produce a new history of belonging, of being, of feeling, of community that transcends and predates, in fact, the nation. And the author does it all in about 200 pages! I wanted to keep reading more and more. But it's already all so rich and complex and yet so beautifully, clearly organized (really appreciated the signposting and guiding of the reader throughout the book: a clearly stated focus, thesis, evidence; the organization of each chapter into clearly developed sub-arguments; the extensive footnotes (they tell another related story!); and, especially, why we need these different histories (as a way to imagine new futures).
