This review is from: Out of the House of Bondage: The Transformation of the Plantation Household (Paperback)
Written by a famous Duke University professor in African and African American studies. I loved "The Help" and its topic and wanted to learn more. I heard this Professor on CSPAN and searched out her writings. The book is not a fanciful novel and I'm sure it's for university course use. Still, it's a very readable book. It's factually accurate without the cherries on top to get a movie option/deal.
If you are serious about this subject, that being, the real "Plantation" living and treatment of "the help" and more, than this book is highly recommended.
