Pub. Date:
This two-volume encyclopedia contains approximately 300 entries on topics in antislavery, abolition, and emancipation, with an objective of detailing the topics in an accessible manner and showing the broad range of forms these forces followed in history. It has three thematic concerns: illustrating the various forms of antislavery and its emergence as an organized movement, showing the causes of abolition and its passage, and describing the process of emancipation and its consequences. Slavery is discussed in many societies and time periods, including the twentieth century, with a focus on the Atlantic world. Following a historical introduction, the entries detail specific countries, important figures and leaders, economic issues, ideology and philosophy, literature, music, the law, organizations and societies, politics, rebellions, religion, slave trade, social and cultural issues, war, and women. Emancipation and abolition are treated separately. Hinks and McKivigan (Indiana U.-Purdue U. Indianapolis) aim the encyclopedia at scholars, students from high school and higher, librarians, teachers, policy advocates, and general readers. An index is included in the second volume only.
