Challenging the Boundaries of Slavery by David Brion Davis

Book Description

In this engaging book, David Brion Davis offers an illuminating perspective on American slavery. Starting with a long view across the temporal and spatial boundaries of world slavery, he traces continuities from the ancient world to the era of exploration, with its expanding markets and rise in consumption of such products as sugar, tobacco, spices and chocolate, to the conditions of the New World settlement that gave rise to a dependence on the forced labour of millions of African slaves. With the American Revolution, slavery crossed another kind of boundary, in a psychological inversion that placed black slaves outside the dream of liberty and equality - and turned them into the Great American Problem.
