Slavery and Freedom: An Interpretation of the Old South
Historian James Oakes's pathbreaking interpretation of the slaveholding South demonstrates that slavery and freedom were not mutually exclusive but were intertwined in every dimension of life in the South, influencing relations between masters and slaves, slaveholders and non-slaveholders, and resulting in the rise of a racist ideology. ". . . a solidly researched, provocative account of the Old South that will make its readers think and rethink".--NEWSDAY.
