"Mutiny on the Amistad" (Book)

The subject book overall was a good small volume (about two hundred pages) read that was put out again in honor of the movie, which not surprisingly isn't quite history. The one thing about the case the book seems to miss is that there is a possibility (if not honored by the opinion) of a mixture of person and property in a slave and we need not and should not focus one or the other. The law in various respects did understand that.
