Editorial Reviews


I am impressed by the organization, content, and coverage of this reader. The editor has blended most, if not all, of the latest developments in the field of slavery studies with appropriate documents. He has done so in a very organized and logical fashion, and I would not hesitate to assign this work in my undergraduate classes.

(Christine Daniels Michigan State University)

The combination of secondary and primary extracts with substantial editorial pieces is particularly impressive. The overview, followed by essays for each section, looks good. Often editorial pieces in other works are too brief. The coverage of the colonial period as well as later years is a significant strength, and the balance between thematic and chronological emphasis is good.

(Michael Tadman University of Liverpool)

Kenneth Morgan then is to be complimented for attempting to bring together a range of documents, essays, and short synopsis, all into one work accessible to undergraduate students. All of us who teach undergraduate history courses, whether surveys or upper division courses will be in Morgan’s debt for producing a work that should stimulate classroom discussion. . . . Kenneth Morgan has done a remarkable job synthesizing a tremendous amount of historical research. . . . He has also managed to put into the hands of students and scholars a concise volume that tells us a great deal about the institution of slavery. This is clearly an important work that students and teachers will do well to consult as a very useful resource.
