Vincent Brown

No peace is given: Slavery and slave revolts at the dawn of the New World empire.

Historian Vincent Brown explores the legacies of slavery, empire and West African slave uprisings at the bloody dawn of global capitalism in the eighteenth-century British Atlantic world, and explains how that history (and its erasure) change how we see (and don't) this world of war, coercion and division in the twenty-first century.

Vincent is author of Tacky’s Revolt: The Story of an Atlantic Slave War from Harvard University Press.
