From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—This comprehensive survey of slavery in the United States between 1619 and the Civil War is valuable because of its emphasis on the effects of the daily lives of slaves, slaveholders, poor whites, Native Americans, and free blacks. Chapters are organized into sections covering subjects such as the Middle Passage and Africa; work; family and community; culture and leisure; health; religion; the business of slavery; resistance and rebellion; and historical reactions for and against the institution. The signed articles—each followed by a short bibliography—are scholarly, but not dense, and generally quote other experts. Controversial topics are presented in a balanced way, discussing both sides of the theory that suggests slave quilts contained secret codes, for instance. This thought-provoking and thorough reference work will appeal to both general and scholarly audiences. American history students will find it useful for reports and background information. Browsers will appreciate the book's liberal use of sidebars and black-and-white reproductions of historical documents, photographs, drawings, and woodcuts. This will work well as a companion to Dorothy Schneider and Carl J. Schneider's Slavery in America (Facts On File, 2007), which is accessible to a younger audience and offers more primary sources.—Patricia N.
