American Antislavery Writings: Colonial Beginnings to Emancipation

Edited by James G. Basker

“To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, The Library of America has compiled an impressive collection of antislavery writings from the late 17th century through to the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment. It’s a truly remarkable anthology, and should be required reading in any study of the subject of slavery.”—Paul Mullinger, San Francisco Book Review
