Review:

"This massive bibliography of 15,667 citations and 5,494 cross-references will surely be the most comprehensive compilation on slavery for a long time to come. Smith ... has included material from obscure and hitherto overlooked' sources, as well as better-known books. There are 25 chapters, which cover such aspects of slavery as African background, the slave trade, geography, economics, and Indian slave owners. Perhaps most interesting, because hard to locate, is the material dealing with conditions of slave life (diet, clothing, medicine, recreation, etc.), family, religion, culture, resistance, and the mind of the slave (personality, education, language). Subject and author indexes increase the value of the work, since there are no annotations. ... Highly recommended for upper-division and graduate libraries."-Choice ?This massive bibliography of 15,667 citations and 5,494 cross-references will surely be the most comprehensive compilation on slavery for a long time to come.
