Black Bondage in the North

 
 
Edgar J. McManus


Paper $19.95s    |   0-8156-2893-5    |   2001

This foremost history of the Northern slave system examines its operation from its colonial beginnings to its dissolution.

Reviews
"A thorough, well-documented, scholarly account of the system of slavery in the middle and northern colonies prior to 1810. In the early 19th century he [McManus] sees economic displacement allowing an emancipation of blacks that is at least as beneficial to the masters as to the blacks. . . . a sound chronicle of slavery in an area whose slave history has not been emphasized. . . . Highly recommended."
Choice

"In this thoroughly researched and well-written study McManus methodically delineates the essential characteristics of slavery in the North. . . . An illuminating study of slavery in a neglected area, a study that will certainly form part of the continuing debate among historians of comparative slavery."
