Chapter Summary

Post-emancipation developments, against a background of different forms of slavery, present a wide-ranging field for research. The literature of sociological generalization is particularly extensive in relation to slavery in the United States. A comparison between Cuba and the United States seems from today's perspective to be inherently very asymmetrical - an asymmetry that is necessarily all the more marked in relation to works that have very different approaches to slavery and post-emancipation in their themes, methods, and regional specializations. The common spatial basis of slavery has been identified conceptually either in terms of the big picture of "Atlantic slavery",the early homage to "cultural blackness" or the image of a "plantation America". New Orleans became the metropolis of a new internal slave trade in the United States. Elections were held in Cuba as early as 1879, still under Spanish rule.
