Editorial Reviews


ADVANCE PRAISE "This is one of those books which reminds us with force and evidence that there is a considerable difference between myth and fact." -- Philip Durham, Western American Literature "State by state, citing editorials, speeches, private letters, statutes, and constitutions, Berwanger reveals that the whites of the West deemed the Negro to be an inherently inferior being, totally unfit for freedom." -- Albert Castel, Civil War Times "Contributes much to a fuller understanding of racial attitudes and of the antislavery movement... [It] demonstrates why the Republican party in the West dedicated itself to blocking the expansion of slavery and shrank from advocating abolition." -- V. Jacque Voegeli, Journal of American History --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
