Finkelman has also published numerous scholarly articles on American legal history and race relations, and he lectures frequently on these subjects. In 1995, he was designated Virginia Historian of the Year by the Virginia Social Science Association.Review:
"This collection will make an excellent addition to the Bedford series.... The documents are well selected. Readers will get a good sampling of many 'classic' statements of the proslavery ideology. Moreover, a wide variety of arguments are represented.... The introduction is especially note worthy; I am unaware of any concise introduction to proslavery thought that is better suited to the classroom."
