about

There Are No Slaves in France examines the paradoxical emergence of political antislavery and institutional racism in the century prior to the French Revolution. Sue Peabody shows how the political culture of late Bourbon France created ample opportunities for contestation over the meaning offreedom. Based on various archival sources, this work will be of interest not only to historians of slavery and France, but to scholars interested in the emergence of modern culture in the Atlantic world.
Sue Peabody is at Washington State University.

Editorial Reviews

"Peabody has produced a solid piece of legal and social history....this is an impressively researched, exhaustively documented book, a model of how to exploit archival and legal primary sources. It should prove to be the definitive study of the slavery question in mainland France prior to theFrench Revolution."--American Historical Review
