Editorial Reviews

Review

Prigg v. Pennsylvania is about much more than slavery. With crisp, engaging prose Baker reveals the critical connection between this landmark case and battles fought today over federalism, the ambiguity of the U.S. Constitution, and how important, though differing, regional priorities become embedded in the law. --Sally Hadden, author of Slave Patrols: Law and Violence in Virginia and the Carolinas

Baker provides a model balance between the personal and legal stories and understands that, while the villains and heroes of his tale may seem obvious to modern readers, the issues were not so clear to antebellum jurists. --Peter Charles Hoffer, author of The Great New York Conspiracy of 1741: Slavery, Crime, and Colonial Law

About the Author

H. Robert Baker is an associate professor of history at Georgia State University and author of The Rescue of Joshua Glover: A Fugitive Slave, the Constitution, and the Coming of the Civil War.
