Anti-slavery Recollections in a series of letters addressed to Mrs Beecher Stowe (2nd edition) / Sir George Stephen

£19.99

Product description

Publication date: 1971. Condition: Very good. The dust jacket is complete, without tears, but has some edge wear and substantial marking. Internally the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked. Content: "It is surprising that until the appearance of "anti-slavery Recollections" no even tolerably complete account of the struggles over West Indian slavery had been published. Despite errors and occasional slap-dash scholarship, Stephens provides an important and fascinating account of the movement. His thumbnail sketches of individual abolitionists are accurate and telling. His account of the rise of the Young England Abolitionists and of their beliefs explains much, not only about the controversies which divided the movement in 1832-1833, but also about what happened to it afterwards. Stephen, unlike many historians, showed that the cause, righteous as it was, was far from united. There were differences in method and also over ideology. Stephen's account is still the most complete one we have of an important phase in the history of British anti-slavery effort. It is also, in its treatment of ideological matters, by far the most perceptive." With an introduction By Dr. Howard Temperley, School of English and American Studies, University of East Anglia.
