    Excellent New Book!

    This is a very interesting book, one that I really enjoyed. It is a very well researched history of slavery in America. It is very easy to read, I finished it in just two sittings. The book does start off a little slow, but the last two-thirds of the book is great. It gives an incredible amount of information about slavery, with lots of footnotes. I learned much, many facts that I didn¿t know and it exposed a number of myths about slavery. I liked the use of quotes from many former slaves that talked about their lives as slaves. The book has an excellent chapter on the Civil War. It has the best explanation of the causes of the Civil War that I have ever seen, and no it wasn¿t just slavery. The author clearly explains how the war started, very well done. It also has 30 or so fact boxes that bring out some rarely known facts about slavery. This is a very good book and is a must on the shelf of any Civil War buff or student of American History or African-American studies. A very good read!
