The book that some say helped start a war--now available in a new package!

The story of a slave struggling to maintain his dignity during the pre-Civil War era, Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published in 1852 to tremendous success. Since then, the book has received significant acclaim and invoked controversy. Many believe it was an important step on the road to the Civil War, but others feel it encouraged stereotypes still fought against today. Yet all can agree that Harriett Beecher Stowe’s novel was been incredibly influential.

 

Following the slave Tom as he is bought and sold to one owner after another, as well as other slaves who escape to freedom with much difficulty, Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a crucial part of our American history. Now available in this Canterbury Classics edition with a special heat-burnished cover, foil stamping, and designed endpapers, it is also a classic well worth reading today.

From the Publisher:

Library of Liberal Arts title.

From the Inside Flap:

Uncle Tom, Topsy, Sambo, Simon Legree, little Eva: their names are American bywords, and all of them are characters in Harriet Beecher Stowe's remarkable novel of the pre-Civil War South. Uncle Tom's Cabin was revolutionary in 1852 for its passionate indictment of slavery and for its presentation of Tom, "a man of humanity," as the first black hero in American fiction. Labeled racist and condescending by some contemporary critics, it remains a shocking, controversial, and powerful work -- exposing the attitudes of white nineteenth-century society toward "the peculiar institution" and documenting, in heartrending detail, the tragic breakup of black Kentucky families "sold down the river." An immediate international sensation, Uncle Tom's Cabin sold 300,000 copies in the first year, was translated into thirty-seven languages, and has never gone out of print: its political impact was immense, its emotional influence immeasurable.
