Rough Crossings: Britain, the Slaves and the American Revolution
Rough Crossings: Britain, the Slaves and the American Revolution

5.0 out of 5 stars Important Book at the right time ..., 8 May 2006
I have just heard the NPR interview with Mr. Schama and am literally going out to buy his book at now. I have long hawked the facts of the British soldiers promises to enslaved Africans of the new colonies. As a Jamaican emigre, The true story of the British form of "kinder, gentler" tyranny is legendary. The scope of slavery is a savage story and can no longer be sugar-coated as it usually is when told from an American perspective. This text and it's authour promises a bolder, more truthful exposition.
