Review
Engerman (economics & history, Univ. of Rochester; coauthor, Time on the Cross ), who has coauthored and coedited several books about slavery and American and British history, claims that slavery in the southern United States was neither as bad as it seems nor as bad as it was in other parts of the world. To support this argument, he includes extensive notes, a 22-page bibliography, and numerous quotes from Frederick Douglass (whom he often contradicts). Slave fertility rates and the "greater heights" of slaves in the United States as compared with those of slaves in the West Indies and Africa are two examples he gives to convince readers that southern U.S. slaves were treated better than slaves living elsewhere. Engerman's book was initially part of a series of lectures that focused on pro-Southern scholarship and does not succeed in demonstrating its usefulness in any other context. For an overview of world slavery, try Milton Meltzer's Slavery: A World History or Junius P. Rodriguez's Chronology of World Slavery . Those interested in the perspectives of slaves in the South would do well with Remembering Slavery , edited by Ira Berlin and others, or Voices from Slavery: 100 Authentic Slave Narratives . Not recommended.—Tonya Briggs, Oberlin Coll. Lib., OH --Tonya Briggs (Reviewed March 1, 2007) (Library Journal, vol 132, issue 4, p94)
