Slavery, Law, and Politics: The Dred Scott Case in Historical Perspective

Cover
Oxford University Press, 1981 - 326 Seiten
This is an abridgement of the Pulitzer-Prize winning The Dred Scott Case, making Fehrenbacher's monumental work available to a wider audience. Although it condenses the original by half, all the chapters and major themes of the larger work have been retained, providing a masterful review of the issues before America on the eve of the Civil War.
