Wealth and Disaster: Atlantic Migrations from a Pyrenean Town in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries
by Pierre Force
Pierre Force talks about his new book, Wealth and Disaster: Atlantic Migrations from a Pyrenean Town in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016), which follows two families who emigrate from the same Pyrenean Town to Saint-Domingue, tracing their descendants in an epic saga that spans three generations. Paul Cheney discusses his new book, Cul de Sac: Patrimony, Capitalism, and Slavery in French Saint-Domingue (University of Chicago Press, 2017), a micro-history of one plantation in France’s richest colony. Emmanuelle Saada and Carl Wennerlind will join the discussion as respondents.
