"An Exciting, Important And Humane Book.
...Once again Herbert Gutman has shown that he is one of the most original and creative minds in the historical profession."
-- David Herbert Donald
"Gutman's, Magnificent Study...promises to force still another rethinking of the meaning of the Afro-American slave experience."
-- George M. Fredrickson, New York Review of Books
"Important And Timely....It upsets many historical notions and many sociological theories."
-- C. Vann Woodward
"Gutman Has Successfully Challenged the traditional view that slavery virtually destroyed the Afro-American family."
-- John Hope Franklin
"The Importance of Professor Gutman's Book extends far beyond its immediate subject. In its implications it is a devastating critique of the recklessness with which 'social scientists' reach the conclusions on which policy recommendations are based."
-- Thomas Sowell, Fortune
