Editorial Reviews

Review

• Edited by Junius P. Rodriguez, Ph.D., award-winning author of ABC-CLIO's The Louisiana Purchase and the award-winning Historical Encyclopedia of World Slavery

• Provides multilevel information: broad-themed essays, A–Z entries, primary and secondary source documents, and a thorough, up-to-date bibliography of slavery scholarship

• A comprehensive treatment of social aspects of slavery that gives rare insight into slavery's effect on both black and white culture

• More than a mere recounting of facts and data, an examination of the evolution of the philosophical and cultural norms that allowed slavery to flourish for so long



• Ten major essays and 300 A–Z entries cover all aspects of slavery

• Over 100 contributors represent the finest scholarship worldwide on the topic

• An impressive collection of 150 original documents illustrate both popular and official attitudes toward slavery

• The massive bibliography is the most complete and up-to-date available

Book Description

The story of slavery in the United States is a painful one. Too often, students get little more than a cursory look at the horrors of the Middle Passage and an overview of the Civil War. This encyclopedia is a scholarly, comprehensive presentation of the whole story.
