Cambria Press author Ana Lucia Araujo’s book highly praised by the Journal of African History

Outstanding Review Journal of African History

Cambria Press congratulates Ana Lucia Araujo on the outstanding review of her book Public Memory of Slavery: Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic by renowned scholar James H. Sweet in The Journal of African History, which states that Professor Araujo’s book is “an important and provocative work.”

It praises the book (published by Cambria Press in 2010) because “no other study so thoroughly chronicles the fraught and ambiguous history of memorializing slavery in the South Atlantic.”

It further adds that Professor Araujo’s “ability to ‘read’ multiple sources – both discursive and non-discursive – makes the book truly interdisciplinary in scope. It will be a crucial starting point for all future studies of slavery and memory in Benin and Brazil.”
