Forceful and detailed account of the struggle for “freedom” after the American Civil War

How did America recover after its years of civil war? How did freed men and women, former slaves, respond to their newly won freedom? David Roediger’s radical new history redefines the idea of freedom after the jubilee, using fresh sources and texts to build on the leading historical accounts of Emancipation and Reconstruction.

Reinstating ex-slaves’ own “freedom dreams” in constructing these histories, Roediger creates a masterful account of the emancipation and its ramifications on a whole host of day-to-day concerns for Whites and Blacks alike, such as property relations, gender roles, and labor.

Reviews of the Seizing Freedom: Slave Emancipation and Liberty for All


LOUIE

From disgust to delight!

JAMIE

The idea is great, but sometimes the text suffers

MARTHA

Light fiction for Cloudy day

OSCAR

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

FREYA

Phone number you need to drive to protect against robots.
