ANN: Maybe Missed: Le Droit des Noirs en France au temps de l'esclavage

Dear Colleagues,

Some of you may have missed our recent (2014) publication. It contains dozens of original legal documents (laws, lawyers' briefs, judicial decisions) reflecting and regulating the presence of black people in France, 15th C.-1848 within original chapters interpreting those documents. Such texts are foundational to the distinction between France's colonial legal regimes and those of the metropole. Please consider ordering a copy for your library.

Best wishes, Sue Peabody and Pierre H. Boulle
