What a Good Book: Ferrer, “Freedom’s Mirror”

This isn’t really breaking news, but I’m reading it for an Atlantic World History grad course I’m teaching, and Ada Ferrer’s Freedom’s Mirror: Cuba and Haiti in the Age of Revolution (Cambridge, 2014), is one of the best books I’ve read in a while.

To be honest, the best two books in the entire course have been that one and James H Sweet’s Domingos Álvares, Africa Healing, and the Intellectual History of the New World (UNC Press, 2013) are the two best books in the whole class, most of which is taken up with the British Atlantic. Proud for our fellow Iberianists!

(I’d read Sweet’s book before, otherwise I’d say it, too, was one of the best books I’ve read in a while..)
