Product Details

Praise

"An Exciting, Important And Humane Book.

…Once again Herbert Gutman has shown that he is one of the most original and creative minds in the historical profession."

— David Herbert Donald

"Gutman’s, Magnificent Study…promises to force still another rethinking of the meaning of the Afro-American slave experience."

— George M. Fredrickson, New York Review of Books

"Important And Timely….It upsets many historical notions and many sociological theories."

— C. Vann Woodward

"Gutman Has Successfully Challenged the traditional view that slavery virtually destroyed the Afro-American family."

— John Hope Franklin

"The Importance of Professor Gutman’s Book extends far beyond its immediate subject. In its implications it is a devastating critique of the recklessness with which ‘social scientists’ reach the conclusions on which policy recommendations are based."

— Thomas Sowell, Fortune
