Scenes of subjection : terror, slavery, and self-making in nineteenth-century America
Hartman shows how the violence of captivity and enslavement was embodied in the performance practices that grew from slave culture in antebellum America. Using anthropology, history and literary criticism, this book examines material such as songs, dance, stories, diaries, narratives, and journals.
