Summary: " African American Voices is a wonderfully conceptualized compilation of first hand testimony on a broad range of topics related to American slavery and slave resistance. It is an enormously valuable contribution." - James Oliver Horton , Benjamin Banneker Professor of American Studies and History at George Washington University and Historian Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History, co-author of Slavery and the Making of America and co-editor of Slavery and Public History: The Tough Stuff of American Memory " African American Voices represents a remarkably informative, deeply moving, very readable collection of key primary documents on the history of slavery and freedom, thoughtfully assembled and skillfully introduced by master historian Steven Mintz. . Highly recommended!" - James Kirby Martin , Distinguished University Professor of History, University of Houston, and editor of Ordinary Courage (3rd edition, 2008) "Steven Mintz combines a helpful discussion of slavery in the western world with a collection of writings by or about African Americans. This volume will engage the interest of college students." - Stanley Harrold , South Carolina State University, and co-author (with Darlene Clark Hine and William Hine) of African Americans: A Concise History (3rd edition) "[A]n extraordinarily well-crafted tool both in the hands of academic teachers and researchers. It sheds a light on all essential aspects of African American history and culture up to the inglorious end of Reconstruction and excels in providing coverage of lesser known facets. With its comprehensive new introduction, it also provides a new perspective on research problems in African American history. . [A] superb publication." -Norbert Finzsch , University of Cologne, Germany. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_1405182679
