Reviews
"This is the most thoughtful collection of materials to accompany a major primary text that I have seen. The editors deserve particular commendation for including a section on teaching Douglass' narrative."--Craig Kaplowitz, Judson University

"The primary document sections are especially valuable as teaching aids. They supplement the narrative and allow readers the opportunity to explore for themselves Douglass's influences and challenges."--Jennifer Helgren, University of the Pacific

"Carefully selected to provide diverse perspectives on distinct aspects of Douglass' life and story, the primary sources offer a fascinating window into the early nineteenth century worlds in which he lived. This edition is the most valuable teaching tool on slavery and abolition available today. It is exceptional."--Nancy Hewitt, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Rutgers University
