    I've heard of and greatly respect the ESSS.  I have read some of Paul E. Lovejoy's writings on the Muslim uprising in Bahia.  Are you familiar with them?  Have you also read the Joao Reis book on the same topic?

    Given your familiarity with Cuba, you must undoubtedly also know of the books I cited in this diary; in particular Insurgent Cuba: Race, Nation, and Revolution, 1868-1898 by historian Ada Ferrer?  Also, have you read Rebecca J. Scott's fascinating book Degrees of Freedom: Louisiana and Cuba after Slavery?

      Thanks for the compliment on the ESSS. I'm familiar with those books, yes. Great works. And I loved that diary; sorry I didn't get a chance to comment.

      I think the history of Cuba is about the most interesting in the world.
