about

Revised to include important new scholarship, James Brewer Stewart's eloquent survey of the abolitionist movement is also a superb analysis of how the antislavery movement reinforced and transformed the dominant features of pre-Civil War America. Revealing the wisdom and na veté of the crusaders' convictions and examining the social bases for their actions, Stewart demonstrates why, despite the ambiguity of its ultimate victory, abolition has left a profound imprint on our national memory.
James Brewer Stewart, James Wallace Professor of History at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, is the author of Joshua R. Giddings and the Tactics of Radical Politics; Wendell Philips: Liberty's Hero; and William Lloyd Garrison and the Challenge of Emancipation.
