Reviews of The African Experience in Spanish America

“The most complete and satisfying account of Spanish American black history available. … Those of us teaching black history must thank Rout for a most valuable classroom text, and those of us working on the history of blacks in America will welcome an account that illustrates so neatly what we know and what we do not.”

The American Historical Review

“A masterly survey — vigorous in its views, rigorous in its scholarship … a classic. … This is decidedly a book with a message, but it is also an excellent book, and one that has been long needed.”

TLS (The Times Literary Supplement)

The African Experience in Spanish America, by Leslie B. Rout, Jr., reprints this pioneering work, with an introduction by Miriam Jimenez Roman and Juan Flores.”
