How Did American Slavery Begin? (Historians at Work) by Edward Countryman

How did slavery in America begin? Gangs of black slaves toiling on large southern plantations dominate many students ideas of African American history. Although ultimately the reality for most forced immigrants of African descent, the institution of slavery was not inevitable in colonial America. Each of the 5 selections in this volume attempts to show students how slavery emerged, how it became the defining condition for African Americans in the British colonies, and how its development influenced and transformed every aspect of society from colonial law and politics to social relations and cultural values.
