This anthology reflects the sweeping changes of recent years in historians' views of slavery, featuring essays from the growing fields of social history, women's history, and comparative history. Its breadth makes it ideal for courses in the history of slavery, African-American history, and the Old South, as well as the U.S. history survey. Part I features two attempts to define slavery, while Part II details the institution's emergence in the New World. Parts III and IV consider important aspects of slave life, culture, family, and gender. Part V is a comparative examination of slavery in the United States, and the essays in Part VI discuss slavery's role in the society of the Old South.
