Abstract:

History is best absorbed through the words of those who experienced it. This 2-volume set illuminates daily life in slave society in America from colonial times to the end of the Civil War. Approximately 240 articles, organized topically for easy browsability, provide in-depth reference and historical information on the business and regulation of slavery, the plantation way of life, work, family and community, culture and leisure, health and medicine, religion, resistance and rebellion, and slavery and freedom in the North. Primary source documents in the form of first-person accounts, slave narratives, newspapers, and literature bring to life the social, economic, political, and cultural context of slavery and the slaves, slave owners, abolitionists, and others involved in the slave experience. Additional features include a chronology, annotated bibliography, and index. This is the perfect reference complement to the electronic product Sources in U.S. History Online: Slavery in America. ...
