Review quote

"At the heart of Barbara Ryan's book is a series of crucial observations about the assumptions of the nineteenth-century world... Ryan identifies meaningful links between slavery and 'free' service from the antebellum period to the Gilded Age... A pleasure to read [and] enormously useful for a scholar in the field of servitude and slavery in the nineteenth century." American Historical Reviewshow more
