Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The first [bibliography] dedicated to the often neglected postemancipation history of former slave-owning societies. . . . The editors present more than 1,600 entries in many languages, arranged geographically and subdivided by type of resource, most of them annotated. . . . Also delves into sources beyond the expected studies of former slaves and slave owners, e.g., the effects of urbanization and immigration during this transitional period."
