A romance of the republic by Lydia Maria Child( )

64 editions published between 1867 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Romance of the Republic, published in 1867, was Lydia Maria Child's fourth novel and the capstone of her remarkable literary career. Written shortly after the Civil War, it offered a progressive alternative to Uncle Tom's Cabin. The novel advocates interracial marriage as an earnest attempt to foster toleration and communication between Anglo- and African Americans. In constructing the tale of fair-skinned Rosa and Flora Royal - daughters of a slaveowner whose mother was also the daughter of a slaveowner - Child consciously attempted to counter two popular claims: that racial intermarriage was unnatural and that slavery was a benevolent institution. But Child's target in A Romance of the Republic was not merely racism. Her characters are forced both to reconsider their attitudes toward white and black and to question the very foundation of the patriarchal society in which they live

Incidents in the life of a slave girl : written by herself by Harriet A Jacobs( Book )

35 editions published between 1858 and 2016 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This enlarged edition of the most significant and celebrated slave narrative now completes the Jacobs family saga, surely one of the most memorable in American history. John S. Jacobs's short slave narrative, "A True Tale of Slavery," published in London in 1861, adds a brother's perspective to Harriet Jacobs's own autobiography. It is an exciting addition to this now classic work, as John S. Jacobs presents additional historical information about the family life so well described by his sister. It portrays the people, places, and events Harriet Jacobs wrote about from the different perspective of a male narrator. Once more, Jean Yellin, who discovered this long-lost document, supplies annotation and authentication. She has also brought her Introduction up to date."--Jacket
