Praise

“The uncommon ground in the title of Ferguson’s highly provocative book is that which yields up evidence of African Americans during the Pre-Revolutionary period. The discussion of archaelogocial findings that elucidate how these enslaved people actually lived is so surprisingly engaging and accessible that at times this reads like a detective story, with one tantalizing clue leading the author to yet another.”—Publishers Weekly

“Fascinating stuff . . . highly recommended.”—Library Journal

“An eloquent book that is both moving and scholarly.”—American Anthropologist

“A major analytical achievement. Through its bold proposition that slaves enjoyed ‘ideological power,’ [Uncommon Ground] offers a new and different model for analyzing plantation social relations.”—American Historical Review
