The Caribbean, Saint-Domingue, 1791. From the grip of French colonialism rises the biggest slave revolution the world has ever known, led by one of the most gifted leaders of all times. The Hour and The Man gives life to this man and this event, delivering a powerful portrayal of black heroism and colonial politics in the Caribbean. Written by 19th century British activist and author Harriet Martineau, this book greatly stirred public opinion after it was first published in 1841 and subsequently fueled the debate on the abolition of slavery. The Hour and The Man still stands as a widely acclaimed read, relying on both historical research and author's imagination. This reprint edition comes with a Reading Guide that includes a geographical map of the revolution, a time-line of events and questions for discussion.
