Omtale: Crowns of Glory, Tears of Blood
A remarkable study of one of the most massive slave rebellions in the history of the Western Hemisphere. In 1823 Demerara (now Guyana), 60,000 black slaves rose up against their British masters and then were brutally put down. With gripping narrative, this book explores the conflicts within the society that gave the rebellion life, and the larger historical forces that finally put slavery to an end.
