William H. Williams fills a gap in the literature on slavery in America. This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the 'peculiar institution' in the First State. An excellent text for courses in colonial and antebellum history, Slavery and Freedom in Delaware provides valuable insight into this unfortunate, unforgettable period in the nation's history.
William H. Williams is southern coordinator of the University of Delaware's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program and professor of history in the Del Tech/University of Delaware Parallel Program in Georgetown, Delaware.
