In ten sparkling chapters the book details and illuminates every aspect of slavery....Slavery is viewed not as a method of regulating race relations, not as an arrangement that was in its essence paternalistic, but as a practical system of controlling and exploiting labor. How the slaves worked, how they resisted bondage, how they were disciplined, how they lived their lives in the quarters, and how they behaved toward each other and toward their masters are themes which receive full exploration....The materials are handled with imagination and verve, the style is polished, the factual evidence is precise and accurate. Some scholars will disagree with the conclusions. No one can afford to disregard them. - Frank W. Klingberg, American Historical Review - Back cover.

THIS BOOKS DISCUSSES THE INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY AS IT WAS PRACTICED IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MR.STAMPP CONFRONTS MANY OF THE MYTHS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ATTITUDES OF THE BLACKS TOWARDS THEIR OWNERS, AS WELL AS THE TREATMENT OF SLAVES BY THEIR OWNERS. I READ THIS BOOK YEARS AGO AND WANT TO REVISIT YHE BOOK BECAUSE OF MY GRANDCHILDREN. THEY NEED TO KNOW MORE THAN WHAT IS IN THEIR HISTORY BOOKS AT SCHOOL.
