Editorial Reviews

Review

"A grand gift. Maurice Jackson has given us an invaluable examination of a remarkable man who stood at the very foundation of the antislavery movement in the eighteenth century. Anthony Benezet's extraordinary story of generosity and commitment is told in Jackson's thoroughly researched, readable book. Those of us who can appreciate what true greatness—in humble and lasting ways—should really mean, owe him our gratitude."—Edward P. Jones, author of The Known World



"Let This Voice Be Heard fulfills the mandate of biography at its best because Maurice Jackson has captured the history of a great moral movement's origins in a single, extraordinary life. An indispensable addition to the antislavery bibliography."—David Levering Lewis, author of W. E. B. Du Bois: The Fight for Equality and the American Century



"A masterpiece of its kind. . . . Jackson has made a major contribution to our understanding of the origins of abolitionism in the Western world. This book will exert considerable influence for many years."—David Brion Davis, author of Inhuman Bondage: The Rise and Fall of Slavery in the New World



"As Jackson demonstrates in his well-researched biography, Benezet was a major force in the transatlantic abolition movement through his publications and correspondence with people like Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Rush in America, and Granville Sharp and John Wesley in Britain."—Vincent Carretta, Eighteenth-Century Studies



"A terrific book about a truly great American. . . . What is especially interesting about Jackson's biography of Benezet is that it reflects a new and applaudable trend of taking the religious views of early abolitionists seriously."—Journal of American Studies

One of the best studies ever done on the abolitionist movement. A very readable, engaging and well researched study of Benezet's contribution to abolitionism. Fantastic work.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Jackson has written a must-read book for anyone interested in abolition, race relations, and American religious history. His passion for Anthony Benezet is obvious and the book is very engaging. It challenges some of the traditional chronology of American abolitionism and presents new early American perceptions of Africa. Very good book!

Format: Hardcover
After going to Jackson's talk at Howard University, I got a copy of his book and just finished reading it. It is a gem! I cannot believe a book had not been written on the incredible Anthony Benezet before. Jackson has truly opened a chest full of treasure, that should not only impact historians or Quakers, but anyone with a deep respect for the past. I applaud Jackson for his breathtaking work and can't wait to see what will come next from him.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Jackson has written an important book at an auspicious time in history. Note the cover reviews by Edward P. Jones, David Levering Lewis, and David Brion Davis. A great addition to any class on the American 18th century.
