Cambridge: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1981. Hardcover. xix, 276p., profusely illus. in color and b&w with endpaper maps. Cloth boards in edgeworn faded dj. Note that a rubberband left in the book long ago has disappeared, leaving stains. This copy derives from the Black Scholar Journal offices (provenance on request), bears their rubber-stamping; very likely it was a review copy because, laid in, are extra plates from the book, stapled together in a kind of sampler. Study by two African American educators of the Surinamese tribe that has kept its African culture intact since their escape from slavers in the 17th century.
