Alderman's condemnation of the system is undercut by his allowance that some servants of ""low character profited by having to work under discipline. Why should remarks that wouldn't be acceptable in a book about black slavery be' allowable when the victims are Irish or German?)

White slavery was before black slavery as well as coincided with each other in the colonies and country of America. Why do our educators and media not talk about this? I enjoyed learning the truth in details. Slavery is bad. It is still legal today. Time to outlaw it worldwide.

I spend a lot of time studying the history of indentured servants in the U.S. This easy to read book provides a great and relatively unbiased look at indentured servants in colonial America. While it also considers the "forced indentures" (i.e., Convict transports or "The King's 7 Year Passengers"), it does not treat that subject very deeply.

Because the majority of people in the plantation states during our early history (i.e., before 1700) were indentured or slaves, it is important to understand that part of colonial history.

Regarding delivery from this supplier, the book arrived promptly and in excellent condition. It was a used Library book.

This book is really interesting for a "history challenged" person like me. I probably had heard about indentured servants when I was in school, but I had forgotten about them. Slaves of any sort was a despicable time in our history.

People think of slavery from Africa but this was much more rampant

A great addition for the genealogy enthusiast. Gives a good insight, and alternate look at early settlers who had no choice, but gave so much.
