The debate among those who sought to abolish slavery in America was a crucial one in the history of the nation, for it raised a great many questions we are still debating. Reading Ms. Kraditor's study of the abolitionists' thinking on the goals, strategy, and tactics of their cause, the modern reader can hardly escape seeing parallels with present-day politics and protest movements. Ms. Kraditor focuses on arguments over the role of women in the Anti-Slavery Society, over religion, and over political action. She sees a struggle between "respectability" and radical action which continues to reverberate. "From first to last this lucid, important book challenges preconceptions. Obviously Professor Kraditor intends to provoke critical reexamination of many points she raises, and in this she is brilliantly successful.... Her book is a fruitful exploration into the history of a great movement."―Harold M. Hyman, Book World. "Original, perceptive, provocative."―American Historical Review

From the Back Cover:

The debate among those who sought to abolish slavery in America was a crucial one in the history of the nation, for it raised a great many questions we are still debating. Studying the abolitionists' thinking on the goals, strategy, and tactics of their cause, Ms. Kraditor focuses on arguments over the role of women in the Anti-Slavery Society, over religion, and over political action. Most of the major tactical problems that arose in the entire history of the abolitionist movement were thrashed out between 1834 and 1850. As the author sees it, the struggle was between "respectability" and radical action.
