about this book

Winner of the Bancroft Prize
Winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Non-fiction

“The most profound, learned and detailed analysis of. . . slavery to appear since World War II. It covers an incredible range of topics and offers fresh insights on nearly every page. . . . Genovese’s great gift is his ability to penetrate the minds of both slaves and masters, revealing not only how they viewed themselves and each other, but also how their contradictory perceptions interacted.”
—David B. Davis, The New York Times Book Review
