The Black Family in Slavery and Freedom, 1750-1925

£9.99

Product description

Herbert Gutman's study of the black family represents an extraordinary amount of research and a major rewriting of history as it has hitherto been known. It explains why most slaves, not merely a tiny elite of fortunate survivors, maintained powerful familial and kin associations, and how these associations sustained the developing Afro-American culture. Illustrated with copies of family trees, charts and tables.

Hardback, in good condition, very small tears to dust cover, former owner signature on front end paper.
