History of Black Americans: From the Compromise of 1850 to the End of the Civil War


"Philip Foner adds to his impressive body of work on US history with this third volume of his History of Black Americans. Like his previous scholarship, it draws upon a remarkably wide range of sources and presents information in a direct and readable form. Foner advances his own interpretation of many of the issues discussed, but he presents the views of other scholars with clarity and fairness, and he always take care to delineate the basis for his views. Even those completely opposed to his views will find this book invaluable as a bibliographic resource and a survey of the literature on the subject.... Foner's Achievement should not be taken lightly. He has produced the single best volume on what may have been the single most important decade in US history. Recommended for all academic and public libraries." - Choice
