This a top notch survey of the many aspects of American slavery. The book's author, Peter Kolchin, expertly presents readers with a good grasp on how historians' views on slavery have developed, where there is disagreement, and what areas need greater exploration. Its brevity and comprehensiveness make it a book which will serve as a guide for further reading. Kolchin further assists readers in that effort by providing a wonderful bibliographic essay at the end of his book. I enjoyed this book immensely and recommend it to anyone interested in understanding the uniqueness of slavery in America.

This book is well written and looks at slavery origins; the Colonial Era; The American Revolution; Antebellum Slavery and The White South; and finally the End of Slavery. The book consist of 7 chapters and 300 pages of reading...This is a good historical look at slavery in the United States...get one for yourself and you decide.

Well balanced history that provides a ton of insight in the current African American culture that is still practiced today. This should be the basis for high school study of the subject.

I bought this for a school report. I found the book somewhat redundant and hard to get through, but over all it is a great overview of American slavery as compared to Russian serfdom and Carribean slavery. Great for undergraduates and book reports. Learned a lot!

I rented this book for my history class last semester and it was really helpful during my online exams and quizzes. It is concise and gives a lot of good information.

A decent read. Gave a good overview of the entire period of history. At times could be a little boring, but overall enjoyable.

This is a great survey of slavery in America. Treats it fairly without getting political.
