Rate this:
This survey of the history of slavery in America describes conditions of slaves transported from Africa, their role in the American South's plantation economy, the restrictions imposed on their lives, the political struggle between slave-holders and abolitionists, several important slave rebellions, and the end of American slavery with the American Civil War.

Lives in Crisis books are vividly written historical accounts of momentous historical events and movements, supplemented with photographs, illustrations, maps, and contemporary cartoons and engravings. Illuminating sidebar material presents quotations and descriptions by men and women who were directly involved in the historic event. These easy-to-read books transform dry historical statistics and dates into intensely readable accounts, and are focused especially to serve as supplements to junior and senior high school texts. The back of each book features a brief summary of important dates, a glossary, and a recommended reading list. Available in both paperback and hardcover editions, these volumes will be welcomed by teachers for classroom use, and will also fill a valuable niche in school and public libraries.
