An excellent resource on the changing population distribution of antebellum Black Americans, this bookcovers census data by region and state. Two-thirds of the book consists of tables and graphs providing dimensional representations of blacks, both free and slave, and their populations in pre-Civil War America. The book opens with a discussion of teh limitations of hte census data, then goes onto provide an overview of the progress of manumission, abolition, and restrictions on black migration. The book also examines the 1840 census controversy. It will be a particularly useful resource for scholars concerned with changes in the black population.
