*Your Time Is Done Now: Slavery, Resistance and Defeat: the Maroon Trials
of Dominica (1813-1814)*

*edited by Polly Pattullo*

*introduction by Bernard Wiltshire*

“We know far too little of the Maroons, and of their attempt to carve out a
free existence for themselves in a dark and oppressive time. It’s good to
have this new window onto that past in this book, and to be reminded again
of the cruelty of Caribbean slavery and the bravery of those who tried to
escape it.” *Adam Hochschild, *author of Bury the Chains

“This is a very valuable book... the documents allow us to hear the voices

of the enslaved.” *Professor Gad Heuman,* editor of Abolition & Slavery

When the Maroons of Dominica challenged the British Empire some 200 years
ago, they were captured and put on trial. Here, for the first time, you can
read their evidence and, unusually, hear their voices — in resistance and
defeat.

*Your **Time Is D**one **Now *tells the story of the Maroons of Dominica
through the transcripts of trials held in 1813 and 1814 at the end of the
Second Maroon War. Using the evidence to explain how the Maroons waged war
against slave society, the book reveals fascinating details about how they
survived in the forests and of their relationship with their allies, the
enslaved on the plantations. It also, again through the historical record,
examines the key role of the British governor, George Ainslie, who
succeeded in suppressing the Maroons, and how the Colonial Office in London
reacted to his punitive conduct.

Editor *Polly Pattullo *is a journalist and publisher of Papillote Press,
which specialises in books about Dominica and the wider Caribbean. The
introduction is by *Bernard Wiltshire*, a Dominican lawyer and a former
attorney-general.
