Hispanic American Historical Review 84:1 Copyright 2004 by Duke University Press The essays emphasize hybridity. Linda Heywood’s chapter does a fine job of exploring the impact of African-Portuguese creole culture on the worldview of slaves prior to their departure for the Americas. Combined with Joseph Miller and John Thornton’s essays, we arrive at a richly nuanced understanding of changes taking place in Africa that would become manifest in the New World. The remaining authors expertly pull the traces of Central African culture into various regional settings in the Americas. The authors are less effective in demonstrating how Central African culture blended with that of other African groups to create Black diasporic culture. The book’s first part introduces the demographic and sociocultural landscape of Central Africa, neatly and succinctly addressing many of the major advances and debates regarding Central African historiography. Its accessibility and detailed maps will prove immensely useful for scholars unfamiliar with the region. The second section deals with Brazil. Mary Karasch provides a fine demographic survey of Central African slaves in Goiás, as well as a convincing argument about their ability to retain Central African historical traditions.
