"The most valuable and stimulating general interpretation of the Old South to appear in recent years."―George M. Fredrickson

This pathbreaking interpretation of the slaveholding South begins with the insight that slavery and freedom were not mutually exclusive but were intertwined in every dimension of life in the South. James Oakes traces the implications of this insight for relations between masters and slaves, slaveholders and non-slaveholders, and for the rise of a racist ideology.

From the Publisher:

"Slavery and Freedom is a subtle yet powerful analysis of the paradoxical relationship between Afro-American slavery and the rise of capitalism, which contained within it the seeds of slavery's destruction" (James M. McPherson, Princeton University). "The most valuable and stimulating general interpretation of the Old South to
appear in recent years."--George M. Fredrickson, Stanford University

James Oakes is the author of several acclaimed books on slavery and the Civil War. His history of emancipation, Freedom National, won the Lincoln Prize and was longlisted for the National Book Award. He is Distinguished Professor of History and Graduate School Humanities Professor at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
