The convict and the colonel by Richard Price( Book )

26 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life of Medard Aribot - Martiniquan artist, convict, madman, legend - spans much of the twentieth century. Born in 1901 when slavery was a living memory, Medard was banished to the Devil's Island penal colony because, people say, he carved the "impertinent" bust of a colonel hoisted overhead by rioters during a 1925 election-day protest that ended in massacre. Today, the miniature gingerbread-style house he built on his return to Martinique has become a popular tourist attraction." "Richard Price draws on long-term ethnography, archival documents, newspapers, old love letters, cinema, street-theater, and Caribbean fiction and poetry to explore how one generation's powerful historical metaphors could so quickly become the next generation's trivial pursuit. Using the election-day massacre and the life of Aribot as emblems of Martinique's transition from colonialism to modernity, Price shows how the fishing village he encountered on his first trip to Martinique in 1962 has been transformed by a heavily assisted welfare-based consumer economy. And how Medard's art and life, once a subversive symbol of anticolonial sentiment, has been silenced by the contemporary rush to modernity ... or has it?"--Jacket

Two evenings in Saramaka by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in the more general context of tale telling by the descendants of Africans throughout the Americas and of recent scholarship in performance studies, these Saramaka tales are presented as a dramatic script. With the help of nearly forty photographs, readers become familiar not only with the characters in folktale-land, but also with the men and women who so imaginatively bring them to life. And because music complements narration in Saramaka just as it does elsewhere in Afro-America, more than fifty songs are presented here in musical notation

Stedman's Surinam : life in an eighteenth-century slave society by John Gabriel Stedman( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This abridgment of the Prices' acclaimed 1988 critical edition is based on Stedman's original, handwritten manuscript, which offers a portrait at considerable variance with the 1796 classic. The unexpurgated text, presented here with extensive notes and commentary, constitutes one of the richest and most evocative accounts ever written of colonial life--and one of the strongest indictments ever to appear against New World slavery
Enigma variations by Richard Price( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and German and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the game of cat-and-mouse unfolds, the trail leads from the fashionable living rooms of French expatriates to the thatched huts of the Amazonian rainforest, from a Princeton seminar room to a cluttered warehouse not far from Devil's Island, from a chic Parisian cafe to the cobbled streets of northeastern Brazil. Are the objects in the collection worldclass masterpieces of primitive art? Or do they reflect the agile hand and twisted mind of a brilliant forger? Or might the ultimate enigma be of an entirely different nature? Under the equatorial sun, the anthropologists' obsessive pursuit of Truth gradually undermines their academic certainties about art and culture - and, ultimately, their vision of reality itself
The root of roots, or, How Afro-American anthropology got its start by Richard Price( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this pamphlet anthropological iconoclasts Richard and Sally Price crack the yellowing diaries of Melville and Frances Herskovits on their famous 1920s expedition deep into the South American jungle, exposing-with their trademark combination of deadpan wit and theoretical rigor-the origins of the field that has come to be known as African diaspora studies. (Taken from the back cover of book.)
