  • The Half Has Never Been Toldby Edward E. Baptist

    Basic Books 2014; US$ 35.00

    Americans tend to assume that modern historiography has produced a full and complete understanding of slavery in the United States, as a shameful pre-modern institution, existing in isolation from America?s later success. But while we have long since rejected the idealistic depiction of happy slaves and paternalistic masters, we have not yet begun... more...

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    William Lloyd Garrison's life as an abolitionist and advocate for social change was dependent on his training as a printer, the one constant in his life.

    The Creole Affair is the story of the most successful slave rebellion in modern history.

  • American Slaveryby Heather Andrea Williams

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 7.99

    Europeans, Africans, and American Indians practiced slavery long before the first purchase of a captive African by a white land-owner in the American colonies; that, however, is the image of slavery most prevalent in the minds of Americans today.

  • The Delectable Negroby Vincent Woodard; Justin A. Joyce; Dwight McBride

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    Scholars of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that Black Americans were cannibalized.
