"The dynamics of racism, class prejudice, and sexism work differently and only reveal how they gear in with each other at specific historical moments. Findlay has addressed these issues with confidence and eclat; the result is both careful and passionate."--Sidney W. Mintz, author of "Caribbean Transformations" and "Sweetness and Power"
