This work tells the story of the schooner Amistad, which was seized by its cargo of slaves while en route to Havana in 1839. The ship was piloted to New York and seized by the U.S. Navy. In a subsequent trial the slaves were charged with mutiny and murder. Though the book is interesting in itself, additional readership will be generated by the current Steven Spielberg film Amistad. A "historical study of a real event that reads like fiction" (LJ 10/1/71). [Besides the film version, coverage of this formerly little-known episode includes several new titles, among them Helen Kromer's Amistad, reviewed in this issue, p. 99.]
