Editorial Reviews


A trove of primary and annotated sources on southern slavery. . . . Reader friendly . . . and written in . . . an engaging fashion." Multicultural Review

The volumes are reader-friendly, accessible whether one goes to them for a particular document or a general reading. . . . An absolute gift to the field as well as a model for the sort of scholarship to which many of us aspire.--Legacy

Yellin's work shines. . . . As the product of twenty-two years of research, it will likely prove definitive for scholars of Jacobs and of slave narratives.--H-Net Reviews

[A] masterwork. . . . The opening chronology and brief biographies of persons referenced in the documents are themselves gems. This model of documentary collecting and editing is required for every library serious about its collections on U.S. history, literature, blacks, women, or slavery.--Library Journal

This vast array of sources, including diaries, letters, convention reports, newspapers, bills of sale, and wills, offers significant insight into many facets of nineteenth-century life. . . . Certainly this excellent collection . . . will enhance research on northern reform, gender relations, race relations, and slavery. . . . Yellin and her team deserve our gratitude for making available and contextualizing this wealth of primary material.--Journal of Southern History

Everything a reader could wish for is here. . . . These volumes will be of greatest interest to graduate students and scholars and those seriously committed to African American and women's history. . . . Essential.--Choice


The first female American slave to author an autobiography, Harriet Jacobs was the only slave narrator in American history to leave behind a paper trail that discloses how she wrote her unique life story. This unprecedented edition unfolds like a wonderfully detailed nineteenth-century novel. The Harriet Jacobs Family Papers is the culmination of Jean Fagan Yellin's magisterial scholarly restoration of Jacobs and her fascinating family to their rightful place in U.S. history.--William L. Andrews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Jean Fagan Yellin has been Harriet Jacobs's most important interpreter. Her edition of the Jacobs papers will be devoured by students of nineteenth-century American slavery and antislavery, feminism, and reform. It is an extraordinary collection.--Ira Berlin, University of Maryland


The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more
