Images of American slavery conjure up cotton plantations and African American slaves locked in bondage until the Civil War. Yet early on in the nineteenth century the state of slavery was very different, and the political vicissitudes of the young nation offered diverse possibilities to slaves. In the century's first two decades, the nation waged war against Britain, Spain, and various Indian tribes. Slaves played a role in the military operations, and the different sides viewed them as a potential source of manpower. While surprising numbers did assist the Americans, the wars created opportunities for slaves to find freedom among the Redcoats, the Spaniards, or the Indians. Author Gene Smith draws on a decade of original research and his curatorial work at the Fort Worth Museum in this fascinating and original narrative history. The way the young nation responded sealed the fate of slaves for the next half century until the Civil War. This drama sheds light on an extraordinary yet little known chapter in the dark saga of American history.

Arming slaves as soldiers is a counterintuitive idea. Yet throughout history, in many varied societies, slaveholders have entrusted slaves with the use of deadly force. This book is the first to survey the practice broadly across space and time, encompassing the cultures of classical Greece, the early Islamic kingdoms of the Near East, West and East Africa, the British and French Caribbean, the United States, and Latin America. To facilitate cross-cultural comparisons, each chapter addresses four crucial issues: the social and cultural facts regarding the arming of slaves, the experience of slave soldiers, the ideological origins and consequences of equipping enslaved peoples for battle, and the impact of the practice on the status of slaves and slavery itself. What emerges from the book is a new historical understanding: the arming of slaves is neither uncommon nor paradoxical but is instead both predictable and explicable.

The history of courtesans and slave girls in the medieval Arab world transcends traditional boundaries of study and opens up new fields of sociological and cultural enquiry. In the process it offers a remarkably rich source of historical and cultural information on medieval Islam. 'The Slave Girls of Baghdad' explores the origins, education and art of the ‘qiyan’ - indentured girls and women who entertained and entranced the caliphs and aristocrats who worked the labyinths of power throughout the Abbasid Empire. In a detailed analysis of Islamic law, historical sources and poetry, F. Matthew Caswell examines the qiyans’ unique place in the society of ninth-century Baghdad, providing a comprehensive cultural overview of an elusive and little understood institution Rigorously trained from the age of nine, the qiyan had a profound impact on the development of elegiac-erotic poetry as well as on trends in art and fashion. For the first time a substantial part of their work is reproduced in translation, showing the bulk of it to consist of clever, often risqué, epigrams bearing the hallmarks of artistic virtuosity and a keen eye for social commentary. A parallel review of the music these women produced reveals their influence on the emergence of popular and unconventional forms of song from Baghdad to Basra. Through a study of contemporary Islamic law and academic literature, Caswell examines the qiyans’ unique place in Abbasid society and their contested moral standing. The qiyan occupied a privileged position which set them apart from the general body of female slaves, as well as the population of free-born women. Caswell traces their long-lasting effect on Arab society and follows the moral criticism that surrounded their social popularity and sexual patronage. This important history will be essential reading for all those concerned with the history of slavery, and its place within both the context of medieval Islam and across the Abbasid Empire.
