About this title


Originally published in 1964 as Insurrection in South Carolina: The Turbulent World of Denmark Vesey, this book remains what John Hope Franklin originally declared it: "Easily the most definitive account in print of a single slave plot. But it is more than that. It is excellent social history of South Carolina in the early nineteenth century and a most revealing analysis of the political and economic system that created the turbulent world of Denmark Vesey.

About the Author:
