This vintage book contains Ulrich Bonnell Phillips's 1918 historical treatise, “American Negro Slavery: A Survey of the Supply, Employment, and Control of Negro Labor as Determined by the Plantation Regime”. Although Phillips displays what we would now consider to be unrepentant racism in this volume, he was an esteemed historian during his time and is able to offer an invaluable insight into life on the plantations. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in the American slave trade, and it would make for a useful addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “The Early Exploitation of Guinea”, “The Maritime Slave Trade”, “The Sugar Islands”, “The Tobacco Colonies”, “The Rice Roast”, “The Northern Colonies”, “Revolution and Reaction”, “The Closing of t he African Slave Trade”, “The Introduction of Cotton and Sugar”, “The Westward Movement”, “The Domestic Slave Trade”, et cetcera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
