63 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Winthrop Jordan sets out in encyclopaedic detail the evolution of white Englishmen's and Anglo-Americans' perceptions of blacks, perceptions of difference used to justify race-based slavery, and liberty and justice for whites only. This second edition reminds us that this text is still the definitive work on the history of race in America in the colonial era. Every book published to this day on slavery and racism builds upon this work; all are judged in comparison to it; none has surpassed it
Tumult and silence at Second Creek an inquiry into a Civil War slave conspiracy by Winthrop D Jordan( )
24 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 2,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the war-fevered spring and summer of 1861, a group of slaves in Adams County, Mississippi, conspired to gain their freedom by overthrowing and murdering their white masters. The conspiracy was discovered, the plotters were arrested and tried, and at least forty slaves in and around Natchez were hanged. By November the affair was over, and the planters of the district united to conceal the event behind a veil of silence. In 1971, Winthrop D. Jordan came upon the central document, previously unanalyzed by modern scholars, upon which this extraordinary book is based - a record of the testimony

Slavery and the American South essays and commentaries by Winthrop D Jordan( )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
AMERICAN HISTORY -- African American -- & In 1900 very few historians were exploring the institution of slavery in the South. But in the next half century, the culture of slavery became a dominating theme in Southern historiography. In the 1970s it was the subject of the first Chancellor's Symposium in Southern History held at the University of Mississippi. Since then, scholarly interest in slavery has proliferated ever more widely. In fact, the editor of this retrospective volume states that since the 1970s "the expansion has resulted in a corpus that has a huge number of components-scores, ev
Affect and power essays on sex, slavery, race, and religion in appreciation of Winthrop D. Jordan by David J Libby( )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1968, Winthrop D. Jordan published his work White Over Black: American Attitudes Toward the Negro, 1550-1812 and opened up new avenues for thinking about sex, slavery, race, and religion in American culture. Over the course of a forty-year career at the University of California and the University of Mississippi, he continued to write about these issues and to train others to think in new ways about interactions of race, gender, faith, and power." "Written by former students of Jordan, these essays are a tribute to the career of one of America's great thinkers and perhaps the most influential American historian of his generation. The book visits historical locales from Puritan New England and French Louisiana to nineteenth-century New York and Mississippi, all the way to Harlem swing clubs and college campuses in the twentieth century. In the process, authors listen to the voies of abolitionists and white supremacists, preachers and politicos, white farm women and black sorority sisters, slaves and jazz musicians."--BOOK JACKET
