Description

Noted historian Marcus Rediker has earned numerous awards for his work, including the sought-after George Washington Book Prize. In The Amistad Rebellion, he turns his attention to the famed slave ship that set sail from Havana in 1839. Painstakingly researched, Rediker's account follows the slaves' point of view, from the joyous moments after they seized the ship through the harrowing court case that would become a touchstone in the struggle for civil rights.

Professional reviews

"Rediker's account of the AMISTAD affair bogs down in repetition, tiresome or extraneous detail, and strained analysis. Peter Jay Fernandez's voice is both distinguished sounding and listenable, and he reads with understanding, but he doesn't rise above the material, if that's even possible. His delivery, while expressive, has something of the feel of a lecture; if it were a person, it would be one we'd respect but wouldn't want to spend time with. He provides a generic "African" accent for the slaves, which is satisfying, but his British accent is unconvincing. The relative stiffness of his delivery, combined with the weaknesses of the text, result in a program from which the listener drifts away too easily. This highly dramatic and significant episode in American history deserves better. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
