The plantation economy model-at its core the sugar plantation complex that structured Caribbean society along a rigid enslaver-enslaved line--has so pervaded Caribbean historiography that it has often masked the social and economic diversification that existed in the age of sugar. Equally veiled are the gender, class, and ethnic heterogeneity of the slave-holding class and the variation in the occupations and lived experience of the enslaved population. This volume seeks to reopen discourse on Caribbean slave society by showing how diverse the economy and society really were and how varied were the experiences of the enslaved.
