9780275957995: Dictionary of Afro-American Slavery: Updated, with a New Introduction and Bibliography (82)

In 1988 Greenwood Press published the Dictionary of Afro-American Slavery to wide acclaim by the library community and scholars in the field. The Dictionary was issued at a time when the study of slavery commanded a central place in American historical thinking and, increasingly, in a host of other disciplines as well. Interest in slavery has not abated. Yet, despite a growing sophistication in methodology and complexity of analysis, the basic contours of the study of slavery remain much the same as when the Dictionary first appeared. To take the latest scholarship into account, the editors have added a new introduction surveying the principal themes in research and writing over the past decade and have appended a bibliography, arranged by broad thematic areas keyed to topics treated in the text.

Book Description:

The acclaimed guide to American slavery, now available to students as well as scholars.

From the Publisher:

The editors, recognized authorities on the subject of slavery (e.g., Smith's two-volume bibliography Black Slavery in the Americas), have filled a void in the literature by producing a magnificent reference compilation. Laboring over the past half decade, they have brought together nearly 300 individual articles covering the period from the first English settlement in America to Reconstruction after the Civil War. Each article includes a selected bibliography to lead readers to further scholarship on a given topic. The topics selected were chosen for their importance both to specialists and to general readers, and the articles were produced by contributors recognized for their special expertise in these assigned topics. Emphasis is placed on the social, institutional, intellectual, and political aspects of slavery. There are entries covering broad subjects as well as selected biographies of well-known persons involved in slavery. . . . [The] publication is so comprehensive and is sure to become a standard academic reference work on slavery, it should be a required purchase for academic libraries serving both undergraduate and graduate students.
