Let's look at the book. It spends about 5 pages on biography and the rest of the book is a very brief history of the abolition movement in the United States written by a resident of the British Isles. The author explains the interest of Benjamin Lundy in the American anti-slavery activity. He shared Garrison's view that slavery should be immediately abolished. On January 1, 1831 the Liberator the paper that would cause Garrison so much trouble and do so much for the antislavery movement. Just 12 months later the first Anti-Slavery Society was founded.
The author introduces Benjamin Lundy, Arthur Tappan, George Thompson, Maria Weston Chapman, Harriet Martineau, Angelica and Sarah Grimke, Lucretia Mott, and the Ladies' Anti-slavery Society. It is not a detailed look, but a taste of what can be examined elsewhere.
Unless you have a lot of money to spend, or a consuming interest in William Lloyd Gerrison, don't bother with this book.
