Reprinted in paper from a 1973 original, McManus' study provides an overview of how America's "peculiar institution" functioned north of the Mason-Dixon line. Unlike in the South, where slaves were employed largely in agricultural labor, the North trained its slave force to meet the needs of a mixed economy, and from the 17th century on, slaves could be found working as farmers, carpenters, shipwrights, sailmakers, printers, tailors, blacksmiths, weavers, and other jobs. The study describes the lives and working conditions of the slaves, how they themselves influenced the operation of the system, and how black resistance to bondage ultimately undermined economic efficiency and turned the racial hegemony of whites into a regime of mutual fear and distrust.

About the Author:

EDGAR J. McMANUS is professor of history at Queens College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is the author of A History of Negro Slavery in New York, also published by Syracuse University Press.

Review:

"A through, well-documented, scholarly account of the system of slavery in the middle and northern colonies prior to 1810. In the early 19th century he [McManus] sees economic displacement allowing an emancipation of blacks that is at least as beneficial to the masters as to the blacks....a sound chronicle of slavery in an area whose slave history has not been emphasized....Highly recommended." - Choice "In this thoroughly researched and well written study McManus methodically delineates the essential characteristics of slavery in the North....An illuminating study of slavery in a neglected area, a study that will certainly form part of the continuing debate among historians of comparative slavery." - Journal of American History
