Book Description:

Why did it take so long to end slavery in the US, and what did it mean that the nation existed eighty-eight years as a "house divided against itself", as Abraham Lincoln put it? The decline of slavery throughout the Atlantic world was a protracted affair, says Patrick Rael, but no other nation endured anything like the US. Rael immerses readers in the mix of social, geographic, economic, and political factors that shaped this unique American experience.
