Students will read about 30 men and women, who were slaves or strongly affected by or associated with the institution of slavery. Profiles include slaves, abolitionists, writers and more. Additional features include sidebars, a "Words to Know" section, further reading section, timeline and subject index.


(a starred review): "The presentation is balanced and credit is given to Quakers and abolitionists who brought about the end of slavery in Europe and the United States. For students who are looking for a broad understanding of the history of slavery or who want to learn more about slavery in the history of the United States, these are excellent resources. Highly Recommended." -- Book Report (May/June 2000)
