Review:

"A miraculous achievement . . . A concise, well-written, and sensibly argued survey of America's greatest shame." ---"The New Yorker" "Peter Kolchin's "American Slavery "is the best history of the 'peculiar institution' that I have ever read. Paying equal attention to the slaves and the slaveholders, it is both comprehensive and fair-minded. A master of comparative history, Kolchin brilliantly shows how American slavery was similar to, and at the same time different from, forced labor in Brazil, the Caribbean, and Russia. His splendid bibliographical essay is an indispensable guide to the vast and complex literature on slavery."--David Herbert Donald, Charles Warren Professor of American History Emeritus, Harvard University "This is a brilliant and masterful synthesis of scholarship on the history of slavery in America. Kolchin not only pulls together all the relevant literature but also strikes out with his own perceptive and trenchant analyses.--August Meier, Kent State Unive

About the Author:

Peter Kolchin is Professor of History at the University of Delaware. Winner of the Bancroft Prize in American history, his other books include Unfree Labor: American Slavery and Russian Serfdom and A Sphinx on American Land.
