Winner of the james harvey robinson prize from the american historical association--and widely acclaimed by educators and students--Abina and the Important Men, Second Edition, is a compelling and powerfully illustrated "graphic history" based on an 1876 court transcript of a West African woman named Abina, who was wrongfully enslaved and took her case to court.

Am i free?" Abina inquires. Slavery becomes a contested ground, as cultural practices collide with an emerging wage economy and British officials turn a blind eye to the presence of underpaid domestic workers in the households of African merchants. Throughout both the court case and the flashbacks that dramatically depict her life in servitude, both the defendants and members of the court strive to "silence" Abina and to impose their own understandings and meanings upon her.

. The book is a microhistory that does much more than simply depict an event in the past; it uses the power of illustration to convey important themes in world history and to reveal the processes by which history is made.

How Did We Get Into This Mess?: Politics, Equality, Nature

Where we have gone wrong, and what to do about it “Without countervailing voices, naming and challenging power, political freedom withers and dies. Without countervailing voices, wells will still be dug and bridges will still be built, but only for the few. New medicines will be developed, but they will be inaccessible to many of those in need.

George monbiot is one of the most vocal, and eloquent, critics of the current consensus. Vintage Books USA. Verso. How did we get into this mess?, the crisis of inequality, the corporate takeover of nature, based on his powerful journalism, assesses the state we are now in: the devastation of the natural world, our obsessions with growth and profit and the decline of the political debate over what to do.

How do we stand up to the powerful when they seem to have all the weapons? what can we do to prepare our children for an uncertain future? Controversial, clear but always rigorously argued, our politics and economics, How Did We Get into this Mess? makes a persuasive case for change in our everyday lives, the ways we treat each other and the natural world.

While his diagnosis of the problems in front of us is clear-sighted and reasonable, he also develops solutions to challenge the politics of fear. Food will still be grown, but it will not reach the mouths of the poor. Without countervailing voices, a better world can never materialise.
