Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

An American issue in black and white if ever there was one. No study of the United States is complete without detailed research on the issue of slavery and its impact on the country.

Sources in U.S. History Online: Slavery in America contains more than 600 documents selected by Professor Orville Vernon Burton (Coastal Carolina University), author of the award-winning Age of Lincoln. It enables students, faculty and patrons to study the institution of slavery from the 17th century through the end of the 19th century. Personal narratives, pamphlets, addresses, monographs, sermons, political speeches and periodicals document key aspects of the "peculiar institution." Library patrons receive structured access to the contents through the Subject Guide, Browse Topics option and through keyword, subject, author, title and full-text searches. From the transatlantic slave trade to the post-Civil War period, the primary source documents - along with poems, songs, plays and novels - make history come to life.
