William Lloyd Garrison and the Fight against Slavery: Selections from The Liberator provides a substantial and wide-ranging selection of writings from The Liberator, the antislavery newspaper founded in 1831 by the preeminent abolitionist of his day, William Lloyd Garrison. The 41 selections offer the opportunity to read and analyze, firsthand, a broad spectrum of Garrison's writings on issues related to slavery. An extensive introductory essay provides historical background on slavery and abolitionism in America as well as a compelling narrative of the events in Garrison's career. Also included are questions to consider when reading Garrison's writings; illustrations, including photographs of Garrison and other famous abolitionists; a chronology of Garrison's life; and a bibliography and index.
