Editorial Reviews


This volume presents carefully constructed analyses of new issues, refreshing contributions to old debates, and a basic initiation into emancipation scholarship. Scholars looking for new approaches to the diverse literature on Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation would be wise to start their reading with this book." --The Journal of Southern History

Provides an excellent history of the proclamation.--The Federal Lawyer

Common themes emerge within this complex interweaving of subject matter and interests. . . . Represents the best of current scholarship on Abraham Lincoln.--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

This volume offers a useful look at how modern historians deal with emancipation.--Louisiana History


Written in an accessible style that will appeal to general readers, these essays are also certain to draw the attention of scholars and students of Lincoln and, particularly, of emancipation during the Civil War. This volume is an important addition to a growing body of scholarship.--Joseph P. Reidy, Howard University

Offering fresh and provocative scholarship, a wide range of views, and sure narrative styles, this volume will inspire comment and controversy and will instantly take its place as a standard text for students exploring the details of the emancipation story and looking for in-depth analysis of a subject that has only recently emerged from decades of scholarly neglect.--Harold Holzer, coeditor of Lincoln and Freedom: Slavery, Emancipation, and the Thirteenth Amendment
