Wendell Phillips, liberty's hero by James Brewer Stewart( )

10 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the Civil War era, no other white American spoke more powerfully against slavery and for the ideals of racial democracy than did Wendell Phillips. Nationally famous as "abolition's golden trumpet," Phillips became the North's most widely hailed public lecturer, even though he espoused ideas most regarded as deeply threatening-the abolition of slavery, equality among races and classes, and women's rights. James Brewer Stewart's study resolves this seeming paradox by showing how Phillips came to possess such extraordinary rhetorical gifts, how he used them to shape the politics of his

William Lloyd Garrison at two hundred : history, legacy, and memory( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Lloyd Garrison (1805-79) was one of the most militant and uncompromising abolitionists in the United States. As the editor of the abolitionist paper The Liberator and cofounder of the American Anti-Slavery Society, Garrison spent most of his life arguing against slavery on strictly moral grounds. This engrossing-book presents six essays that reevaluate Garrison's legacy, his accomplishments, and his limitations. Eminent scholars and a distinguished journalist, Lloyd McKim Garrison, who is Garrison's direct descendant, reflect on Garrison as a political activist, an internationalist, an advocate of feminism, and more."--BOOK JACKET
Venture Smith and the business of slavery and freedom by James Brewer Stewart( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The family, determined to honor the bicentennial of their founding ancestor's death by discovering everything possible about his life, opened burial plots in the hope of recovering DNA for genealogical tracing. What began as a scientific inquiry into African origins rapidly evolved into an interdisciplinary collaboration between historians, literary analysts, geographers, genealogists, anthropologists, political philosophers, genomic biologists, and, perhaps most revealingly, a poet. Their common goal has been to reconstruct the life of an extraordinary African American and to assay its implications for the sprawling, troubled eighteenth-century world of racial exploitation over which he triumphed.

Race and the early republic : racial consciousness and nation-building in the early republic( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By 1840, American politics was a paradox-unprecedented freedom and equality for men of European descent, and the simultaneous isolation and degradation of people of African and Native American descent. Historians have often characterized this phenomenon as the ""white republic."" Race and the Early Republic offers a rich account of how this paradox evolved, beginning with the fledgling nation of the 1770s and running through the antebellum years. The essays in the volume, written by a wide array of scholars, are arranged so as to allow a clear understanding of how and why white political supre
