An important contribution to the research on contemporary Australian society as well as diaspora and Jewish studies, this book examines a topic that has rarely been reported on or studied. It is the first comprehensive study on the immigration and integration of Egyptian-Jewish people into Australian society.
Interactions, Identities, and Images
Examines the complex and unique human, cultural, and religious exchanges that resulted from the enslavement and the trade of Africans in the North and the South Atlantic regions during the transatlantic slave trade era.
Ethnogenesis in Context
"Unique to this volume is the scholarly presentation of the presence of a group of people in Ghana ... Undoubtedly, both this surprising feature of Latin Americans returning to the African continent and the book as a whole will stimulate further discussion on the issue of who is Black and who is Hispanic as well as generate continued, in-depth research on the relationship between two continents and their shared genotypology." - Mixed Race Studies
Victims and Perpetrators in the South Atlantic
"An important and provocative work. No other study so
thoroughly chronicles the fraught and ambiguous history of memorializing slavery
in the South Atlantic. 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." – James H. Sweet, Journal of African History
