Inhuman Bondage

The Rise and Fall of Slavery in the New World

David Brion Davis

  • Highlights the international character of the Atlantic slave trade and the roles of the American judiciary, the presidency, the media, and of both black and white abolitionists
  • Reaches back to ancient foundations and traces the long evolution of anti-black racism
  • Combines the subjects of slavery and abolitionism as very few books do, and illuminates the meaning of nineteenth-century slave conspiracies and revolts
  • Offers a compelling narrative that links together the profits of slavery, the pain of the enslaved, and the legacy of racism
