Reviews

"Shocking. . . . Eviscerates one of our schoolchildren's most basic assumptions: that slavery in America ended with the Civil War." --The New York Times

"An astonishing book. . . . It will challenge and change your understanding of what we were as Americans-and of what we are." --Chicago Tribune

"The genius of Blackmon's book is that it illuminates both the real human tragedy and the profoundly corrupting nature of the Old South slavery as it transformed to establish a New South social order." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A formidably researched, powerfully written, wrenchingly detailed narrative." --St. Louis Post-Dispatch
