from the Cato Institute's Jim Powell
"A thoughtful, well-written book with a provocative and challenging thesis. Offers a refreshing abolitionist, antiwar case that hasn't been heard in a long time."
David Beito, author of Taxpayers in Revolt and Black Maverick: T.R.M. Howard's Fight for Civil Rights and Economic Power
For thousands of years, slavery went unchallenged in principle. Then in a single century, slavery was abolished and more than seven million slaves were freed. The scope and speed of this transformation makes it one of the most amazing feats in modern history. Greatest Emancipations tells this fascinating story, focusing on the areas where slavery was the most entrenched:
Jim Powell takes readers from the beginnings of the abolitionist movement through the battles, the final victory of emancipation, and the incredible impact of its aftermath. At each step, he offers highly compelling insights and while illustrating the horror and pervasiveness of slavery, celebrates the conviction and hard work of those who fought to eradicate it. Further, Greatest Emancipations reveals the tremendous influence that slavery's eradication had on individual societies in the west, and underscores the key role played by peaceful antislavery strategies.
