An interesting attempt at collaboration is going on at Greenwood Publishing Group. I’d love to see a project like this done as a wiki.
Work has begun on The Encyclopedia of Slave Resistance and Rebellions, to be edited by Junius P. Rodriguez and published by Greenwood Press. Scheduled to appear in June 2007, the work will comprise alphabetically arranged entries on all aspects of the subject and is intended to provide an overview of current scholarship in the field.
This single volume 350,000-word encyclopedia will cover the history of slave resistance and rebellion from antiquity to the late-nineteenth century. Entries will consist of specific incidents, individuals, concepts, thematic essays, and artistic/literary renderings of slave resistance and rebellion.
A listing of topics available and other project information can be viewed at: http://www.eureka.edu/emp/jrodrig/greenwood/rr.htm If you are interested in writing encyclopedia entries for this project inquiries should be addressed to:
