Summary First published in 1996 by the Mexican publisher Centro de Investigacion Cientifica, this documentary history provides a vivid overview of African slavery in Cuba (which wasn't abolished until 1886, later than any country save Brazil) and its relationship to the plantation system of the New World. The book is comprised of two parts; the first is a rich introductory essay by the author, and the second is a collection of eighty previously unpublished primary documents from various Cuban archives that shed light on the lived experiences of Cuba's African slaves.
