Product description


This is a timely collection that will redefine slavery as most Americans understand the term.

--Robert Blair St. George, University of Pennsylvania

This collection is beautifully written, authoritative, and addresses a topic much in need of study. Building on earlier work by these experts in their respective fields, it also breaks important new ground both in slavery studies and in architectural history.

--Charles Dew, author of The Making of a Racist: A Southerner Reflects on Family, History, and the Slave Trade

The essays in this volume are universally engaging, and each represents an excellent treatment of a particular time and place. Together they comprise a wide and varied group of case studies of urban slavery.

--Emma Hart, University of St. Andrews, author of Building Charleston: Town and Society in the Eighteenth-Century British Atlantic World
