Samenvatting

Anton de Kom’s We Slaves of Suriname is a literary masterpiece as well as a fierce indictment of racism and colonialism. In this classic book, published here in English for the first time, the Surinamese writer and resistance leader recounts the history of his homeland, from the first settlements by Europeans in search of gold through the era of the slave trade and the period of Dutch colonial rule, when the old slave mentality persisted, long after slavery had been formally abolished.

159 years after the abolition of slavery in Suriname and 88 years after its initial publication, We Slaves of Suriname has lost none of its brilliance and power.

Over Anton de Kom

Anton de Kom is een van de centrale figuren uit de Surinaamse geschiedenis en literatuur. Vanaf de verschijning is 'Wij slaven van Suriname' een controversieel en belangrijk boek geweest - dankzij de historische dimensie is het ook tijdloos gebleken.
