"From the very dawn of the transatlantic slave trade, Africans resisted their capture and enslavement. " This detailed volume explores how the South was rife with acts of slave rebellion long before Abraham Lincoln 's Emancipation Proclamation. Rebellions ranged from quiet acts of individual resistance, such as working as slowly as possible, to outright fierce, organized movements that resulted in destruction of property and the deaths of slave owners. The text also addresses the fear-based, violent oligarchy of the South, which passed increasingly restrictive and discriminatory legislation due to slave uprisings. Interspersed with period photographs and primary-source material including newspaper clippings and document excerpts (highlighted in orange), this book provides an excellent examination of the horrors of slavery. Back matter contains a time line, sources, bibliography, Web sites for additional information, and an index.
