Description: In this broad-ranging book, the pre-eminent authority on the history of slavery meditates on the origins, experience, & legacy of this "peculiar institution." David Brion Davis begins with a substantial & highly personal introduction in which he discusses some of the major ideas & individuals that have shaped his approach to history. He then presents a series of interlocking essays that cover topics including slave resistance, the historical construction of race, & the connections between the abolitionist movement & the struggle for women's rights. The book also includes essays on such major figures as Reinhold Niebuhr & Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as appreciation for two of the finest historians of the twentieth century: C. Vann Woodward & Eugene D. Genovese. Gathered together for the first time, these essays present the major intellectual, historical, & moral issues essential to the study of New World slavery & its devastating legacy.
