Step into 18th Century Jamaica

Imagine you’re transported back to the 18th century, amidst the raw and vivid scenes of Jamaica’s plantation society. This isn’t just any narrative – it’s an authentic journey through the eyes of Thomas Thistlewood, a plantation owner whose detailed diary entries provide a rare glimpse into this era’s brutal realities.

A Diary Like No Other

You’ll be taken aback by Thistlewood’s stark accounts of domination and cruelty. His words paint a picture of how white slave-owners maintained their power through fear and violence. But it wasn’t just physical terror that underlaid the social order; there were also rampant sexual exploitation and complex interpersonal dynamics at play.

More Than Just a Historical Account

This book is not merely a recounting of events but an analysis that lays bare the structures of power and notions of race, class, gender, sexuality, and human rights within the plantation framework. It’s as informative as it is eye-opening.
