'Phillips came close to greatness as a historian, perhaps as close as any historian this country has produced. We may leave to those who live in the world of absolute good and evil the task of explaining how a man with such primitive views of fundamental social questions could write such splendid history...He asked more and better questions than many of us still are willing to admit, and he carried on his investigations with consistent freshness and critical intelligence...American Negro Slavery is not the last word on its subject, merely the indispensable first.'--Eugene D. Genovese, from his Foreword
