From peace to freedom : Quaker rhetoric and the birth of American antislavery, 1657-1761 by Brycchan Carey( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 1,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first book to investigate in detail the origins of antislavery thought and rhetoric within the Society of Friends, Brycchan Carey shows how the Quakers turned against slavery in the first half of the eighteenth century and became the first organization to take a stand against the slave trade. Through meticulous examination of the earliest writings of the Friends, including journals and letters, Carey reveals the society's gradual transition from expressing doubt about slavery to adamant opposition. He shows that while progression toward this stance was ongoing, it was slow and uneven and that it was vigorous internal debate and discussion that ultimately led to a call for abolition. His book will be a major contribution to the history of the rhetoric of antislavery and the development of antislavery thought as explicated in early Quaker writing"--
Quakers and abolition by Geoffrey Gilbert Plank( )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of fifteen insightful essays examines the complexity and diversity of Quaker antislavery attitudes across three centuries, from 1658 to 1890. Contributors from a range of disciplines, nations, and faith backgrounds show how Quakers often disagreed with one another and the larger antislavery movement about slavery itself and the best path to emancipation. Far from having monolithic beliefs, Quakers embraced such diverse approaches as benevolent slave-holding, both gradual and comprehensive abolition, and consumer boycotts of slave-produced products."--Jacket

17 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literary histories of the early Anglophone Caribbean : islands in the stream( )

9 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Caribbean has traditionally been understood as a region that did not develop a significant 'native' literary culture until the postcolonial period. Indeed, most literary histories of the Caribbean begin with the texts associated with the independence movements of the early twentieth century. However, as recent research has shown, although the printing press did not arrive in the Caribbean until 1718, the roots of Caribbean literary history predate its arrival. This collection contributes to this research by filling a significant gap in literary and historical knowledge with the first collection of essays specifically focused on the literatures of the early Caribbean before 1850"--
Birds in eighteenth-century literature : reason, emotion, and ornithology, 1700-1840 by Brycchan Carey( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines literary representations of birds from across the world in an age of expanding European colonialism. It offers important new perspectives into the ways birds populate and generate cultural meaning in a variety of literary and non-literary genres from 1700-1840 as well as throughout a broad range of ecosystems and bioregions. It considers a wide range of authors, including some of the most celebrated figures in eighteenth-century literature such as John Gay, Henry Fielding, Laurence Sterne, Anna Letitia Barbauld, William Cowper, Mary Wollstonecraft, Thomas Bewick, Charlotte Smith, William Wordsworth, and Gilbert White
The interesting narrative by Olaudah Equiano( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Published a few days before the British parliament first debated the abolition of the slave trade in 1789, Olaudah Equiano's Interesting Narrative gives the author's account of his enslavement after his childhood kidnapping in Africa, and his journey from slavery to freedom. Equiano was slave to a captain in the Royal Navy, and later to a Quaker merchant, and he vividly depicts the appalling treatment of enslaved people at sea and on land. He takes part in naval engagements, is shipwrecked, and has other exciting adventures on his travels to the Caribbean, America, and the Arctic. Equiano claimed his own freedom and became an important abolitionist, but his Narrative is much more than merely a political pamphlet. The most important African autobiography of the eighteenth century, it has achieved an increasingly central position among the century's great works of literature. The introduction to this edition surveys recent debates about Equiano's birthplace and identity, and considers his campaigning role and literary achievements."--Publisher's description

The Pennsylvanian origins of British abolitionism by Brycchan Carey( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Led by the scholar Franz Daniel Pastorius, a group of Mennonites affiliated with the local Quakers argued that they were 'against the traffick of men-body' because it conflicted with the Christian Golden Rule to 'doe to all men like as we will be done ourselves; making no difference of what generation, descent or colour they are'; because news that Pennsylvanians kept slaves would send an 'ill report of the colony to Europe and deter future colonists', and because the ever-present danger of a slave uprising might lead otherwise pacifist Quakers to 'take the sword at hand and war against these poor slaves'. What it does mean is that because Quakers dominated both secular and religious institutions in the colony, because they had a culture that allowed debate and constructive dissent, and because once those debates had taken place Friends were expected to toe the corporate line, debate about the legitimacy of slavery took place within the structures of Pennsylvanian Quakerism which uniquely embraced both church and state
