Extensive archival and anecdotal
  sources support Michael Mullin's description of slavery as it was practiced
  in tidewater Virginia, on the rice coast of the Carolinas, and in Jamaica and
  Barbados. Drawing upon case histories, Mullin offers new and definitive information
  about how African's met and often overcame the challenges and deprivations of
  their new lives through religion, family life, and economic strategies.
 "Africa in America is more
  than another account of slave resistance and accommodation. It is a brilliant
  and provocative work of historical anthropology and a synthetic account of slavery
  that firmly places the subject in a comparative and long-term context. . . .
  Mullin's three-part chronology of resistance and rebellion is attractive in
  its simplicity and flexibility." --  James D. Rice, Southern Historian
