  • The Making of an Abolitionistby Denis Brennan

    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. None who have studied Garrison can ignore his editorship of The Liberator but many have not fully understood his belief in the central role of a well-edited newspaper in the maintenance of a healthy... more...

  • The Creole Affairby Arthur T. Downey

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2014; US$ 39.99

    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. This Very Short Introduction begins with the Portuguese capture of Africans in the 1400s and traces the... more...

    University of Alabama Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    Tennesseans at War, 1812?1815 by Tom Kanon tells the often forgotten story of the central role citizens and soldiers from Tennessee played in the Creek War in Alabama and War of 1812.

  • The Traumatic Colonelby Michael J. Drexler; Ed White

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    In American political fantasy, the Founding Fathers loom large, at once historical and mythical figures. In The Traumatic Colonel , Michael J. Drexler and Ed White examine the Founders as imaginative fictions, characters in the specifically literary sense, whose significance emerged from narrative elements clustered around them. From the revolutionary... more...

  • 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.
