Halpern (history, U. of Toronto, Canada) and Dal Lago (American history, National U. of Ireland) present a combination reader and documentary history of the development and eventual abolition of slavery in the United States. Each section contains at least three documents and one article, dealing with slavery in different eras and exploring such topics as the formation of the planter class, slavery and the Revolution, resistance and rebellion, life in the "big house" and in slave quarters, and the politics of secession.
