Editorial Reviews

Booknews
W. E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963) was a champion of civil rights and the political and cultural voice of black Americans of his day. This is his doctoral dissertation for Harvard, examining slavery in Colonial America, its consideration by the Constitutional Convention, the plantation economy of the South and its influence on the slave trade, and the role of Northern merchants in financing the slave trade. This 1896 classic remains a model of historical research and writing. This is an unabridged republication of the edition first published by Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1896. It includes a new, brief introduction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
