456 Book Reviews / Societies Without Borders 4 (2009) 452–459 Internationalizing the African American Struggle – or Not Th e Origins of African-American Interests in International Law . By Henry J. Richardson III. (Durham, NC: Carolina Academic Press, 2008. 501 pp. hardcover, $65.00). Eyes Oﬀ the Prize: Th e United Nations and the African American Struggle for Human Rights, 1944–1955 . By Carol Anderson. (New York, NY: Cambridge University Press, 2003. 302 pp. hardcover, $89.00; softcover, $29.99). Year after year I, and many others like me, struggle to educate the poorly misguided folks who are indoctrinated with the idea that black slaves were happy, or otherwise comfortable in captivity, or that black slaves did not possess the will or ability to eﬀ ectively revolt against the system of chattel slavery. We hear these claims from students mostly, but on occasion, and much to our dismay, we hear it from other scholars and faculty. Although a plethora of research is available to discount such asinine claims, a com- plete historical understanding of how blacks tried to ﬁ ght back using legal means, especially during the early years of American and International slavery, was missing in race and ethnic scholarship.
