about

In Amelioration and Empire, Christa Dierksheide moves beyond the binary of pro- and anti-slavery to argue that "enlightened" planters in the British Caribbean and the American South articulated a powerful alternative vision of nation-building and colonization in the Atlantic world based on gradual progress and mitigated slavery, rather than radical revolution and liberty.
