Recommends it for: Anyone interested in the peculiar institution.

João José Reis' Slave Rebellion, which treats the great Mâle slave revolt of January 1835 that occurred in Salvador da Bahia, is first and foremost a monograph, i.e. it is a work that attempts to makes the interesting dull and which is very prudent in the conclusions that it draws.

Uma pesquisa excepcional sobre o levante dos malês, a unica revolta musulmana dos escravos do novo mundo. O minucioso trabalho historico, etnico e social descreve com minutias as origens profundas desse confronto e o temor que ele espalhou no Brasil imperial. As consequencias do fracasso do movimento - o fim do Islã baiano dos nagos e ussas -, bem como a sua permanecia em algumas tradiçoes do candomblé, teriam talvez merecidos mais desdobramentos nessa obra mestre do Joao José Reis.

My copy is paperback with 281 pages 1995 edition.
I wanted to give it a 4 1/2 stars. Of course being a student & fan of history, sociology, psychology, it was a 'college' textbook for me. Reis did an in depth study from (I forgot to count how many volumes) all available records. A very objective study of Brazilian history.

This book dragged. The author could have told a fascinating story, but decided to rely instead on both analyzing too many graphs of population distribution, and trying to denounce the earlier version of this book by Euclides de Cunha. Rarely told story, badly told story.

This is a must read if you are studying the history of slavery in the Americas. Hands Down.
