Overview

Insolent Slave

Arguing that the treatment by Southern whites of slave "insolence" demonstrates that they recognized the power of rhetoric in questioning and challenging the social order, Wiethoff examines the way so-called insolence was viewed and treated by Southern elites from legislative, business, social, and moral perspectives. Each perspective is accorded separate treatment and accompanied by a case study illustrating the argument. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
