In Inhuman Bondage, David Brion Davis sums up a lifetime of insight, beginning with the dramatic Amistad case. He looks at slavery in the American South, describing black slaveholding planters; the rise of the Cotton Kingdom; the daily life of ordinary slaves; the highly destructive internal long-distance slave trade; the sexual exploitation of slaves; the emergence of an African-American culture; and much more. A definitive history by a writer deeply immersed in the subject, Inhuman Bondage links together the profits of slavery, the pain of the enslaved, and the legacy of racism.

David Brion Davis is recognized as the leading authority on slavery in the Western world. His books have won such awards as the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

    " The scope of this book is huge, but each aspect is still treated thoroughly and effectively. I'm not a fan of microhistory, so the level of detail in each aspect covered is just about right for me. "

    " Well written history of slavery in the United States and the rest of the Americas. Michelle Bachman could learn something (anything!) from this book. "

    " The formatting is quite nice, an ordinary reader would be surprised by the scope and the material condensed in the book. However its severely lacking of details made this book more like some sort of summary instead of a scholastic piece. "
