Description
(Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award) Even as the brutal 1791–1804 Haitian Revolution freed a nation from colonial control, it inspired American abolitionists and terrified slave owners. In this history, David Brion Davis examines this turning of the tide, vividly depicting the dehumanizing effects of slavery while tracing America's slow but inexorable progress toward emancipation. Davis won the Pulitzer Prize for The Problem of Slavery in Western Culture and the National Book Award for The Problem of Slavery in the Age of Revolution; this conclusion to the trilogy earned him the National Book Critics Circle Award.

"Concluding his magisterial trilogy on slavery, David Brion Davis discovers, questions, and provokes, with the philosophical as well as historical acuity that has made him one of America's few truly great historians."—Sean Wilentz
