About the Author

J. D. Dickey is the New York Times bestselling author of Empire of Mud, a history of the troubled rise of Washington, D.C., in the nineteenth century, Rising in Flames: Sherman’s March and the Fight for a New Nation and American Demagogue, both published by Pegasus Books.  


“A new history of the 1830s anti-slavery movement and the unprecedented violence with which it was met. Dickey focuses on several key abolitionist leaders, notably William Lloyd Garrison, easily the best-known figure of the movement’s early years. But as the author shows, Garrison was hardly alone. While he was a pioneering voice, he had a number of supporters and rivals for the leading role in the movement. A fascinating look at a slice of history that may be unfamiliar to many general readers.”
*Kirkus Reviews*

“Renowned historian Dickey meticulously revisits one of the ugliest times in American history, when violence was commonplace during the early days of the abolition movement, 1833–38. Dickey’s fascinating history reminds readers how crucial social movements take extreme courage, persistence, and adaptability.”

“Empire of Mud, J.D. Dickey’s history of early Washington, is a bracing and graceful read. Dickey’s sharp reporting allows unexpected heroes to peep through.”
*Washington Post*

“No one interested in Sherman’s triumphant march should be deprived of his lively narrative [of Rising in Flames]. Absolutely spellbinding… a testament to the author’s prodigious research.”
*Wall Street Journal*

“Dickey deftly portrays the tumult. Black abolitionists — who, Dickey hints, were never allowed to radicalize to the same degree as whites — drive the narrative.  This reader is hoping a future volume will see Dickey bring his lively prose to the 1840s abolitionist movement. The Republic of Violence is not your typical chronicle of abolition, and readers are the better for it.”
*Washington Independent Review of Books*
