The American Crucible: Slavery, Emancipation and Human Rights [9781781681060]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
For over three centuries, slavery in the Americas fuelled the growth of capitalism. The stirrings of a revolutionary age in the late eighteenth century challenged this peculiar institution and set the scene for great acts of emancipation in Haiti in 1804, in the United States in the 1860s, and Brazil in the 1880s. Blackburn argues that the anti-slavery movement helped forge the political and social ideals we live by today.
AUTHOR: ROBIN BLACKBURN teaches at the New School in New York and the University of Essex in the UK. He is the author of many books, including The Making of New World Slavery, The Overthrow of Colonial Slavery, Age Shock, Banking on Death, and The American Crucible.
