A master of comparative history, Kolchin brilliantly shows how American slavery was similar to, and at the same time different from, forced labor in Brazil, the Caribbean, and Russia. His splendid bibliographical essay is an indispensable guide to the vast and complex literature on slavery. Kolchin not only pulls together all the relevant literature but also strikes out with his own perceptive and trenchant analyses.

American Slavery

I rented this book for my history class last semester and it was really helpful during my online exams and quizzes. It is concise and gives a lot of good information. This book is well written, covers kolvhin information in a clear format. This book is very fascinating. I bought this for a school report. I found the book somewhat redundant and hard to get through, but over all it is a great overview of American slavery as compared to Russian serfdom and Kolchij slavery.


Great for undergraduates and book reports. Gave a good overview of the entire period of history. At times could be a little boring, but overall enjoyable. See all 27 reviews.
