"A wealth of material for scholars of nineteenth-century America and of women and slaves in particular. Women and Slavery in America is a well-edited documentary reader that examines the circumstances of women in slavery--the ones that compelled many of Weld's lecturers to go into the field to agitate against America's peculiar institution. It is also more than that, as it brings together the experiences of a diverse array of women, free and slave, Northern and Southern, rich and poor, and African American and white, to examine the effect of slavery upon women in particular." --Bonnie Laughlin-Schultz, H-CivWar Reviews, June 2012
"Illuminating as they are stark, the documents tell stories of coercion, exploitation, and violence, as well as cooperation, autonomy, and agency. The editors' thoughtful selection of documents allows them to speak to one another across the chapters." --Stephanie Stegman, H-Net Reviews, Oct. 2012
2012 Choice Outstanding Academic Title
