"No one has done more to explain the origins of Lousiana's free people of color than Kimberly Hanger. Hanger's mastery of both the literature of free blacks in the New World and her deep understanding of the development of colonial Louisiana enables her to place Louisiana's free people of color in hemisphere perspective, while exposing the fine-grained texture of their daily lives. "Bounded Lives, Bounded Places" is the best study of free people of color in Spanish Louisiana."--Ira Berlin, University of Maryland
