KATHRYN KISH SKLAR and JAMES BREWER STEWART. The eras of the early republic and antebellum America opened doors for many northern African-Americans. At an international conference sponsored by the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition, held at Yale University in October 2002, a group of historians gathered to consider the relationship between transatlantic antislavery and transatlantic women’s rights.

At the centre of the book is the question of whether the goal of political equality is so far beyond our human limits that it should be abandoned in favour of more attainable ends, or if there are ways to realistically address and reduce inequities. Though complete equality is unattainable, Dahl argues that strides toward that ideal are both desirable and feasible. He shows the remarkable shift in recent centuries toward democracy and political equality the world over  . Скачать (pdf, . 2 Mb).

Two epochal developments profoundly influenced the history of the Atlantic world between 1770 and 1870―the rise of women’s rightsactivism and the drive to eliminate chattel slavery. The contributors to this volume, eminent scholars from a variety of disciplines, investigate the intertwining histories of abolitionism and feminism on both sides of the Atlantic during this dynamic century of change. They illuminate the many ways that the two movements developed together and influenced one another.Approaching a wide range of transnational topics, the authors ask how conceptions of slavery and gendered society differed in the United States, France, Germany, and Britain; how women’s activism reached across national boundaries; how racial identities affected the boundaries of women’s activism; and what was distinctive about African-American women’s participation as activists. Their thought-provoking answers provide rich insights into the history of struggles for social justice across the Atlantic world.

This monograph contains a series of essays which consider the transatlantic (France, Germany, England, Canada and the United States) antislavery movement from numerous different perspectives (theories, individuals, women's rights, and suffrage) and trans-historically. Abolitionists' collaboration across race, class, gender, and nationality is an under-explored aspect of the movement which resulted in very different effects in British North America versus the United States. The focus of the monograph is weighted towards the North American experience. The essays are well written and could be enjoyed by academic and non-academic audiences alike. Leading historians combined with literary, legal, and gender scholars have produced an engaging work which I strongly recommend to anyone interested in the emergence of civic activism in the nineteenth century.

This was an okay book for a textbook in my history class that is for women. I learned about the slavery movement while reading it.
