About the Book


“A thoroughly researched, lucidly written biography . . . Adler does an excellent job of exploring the atrocities and dehumanizing indignities that America’s ‘peculiar institution’ visited on those who lived in slavery . . . clearly demonstrates that Douglass was, indeed, one of the great men of the nineteenth century.”

“Adler presents a compelling exploration . . . This well-written and absorbing read is an important inclusion for all collections. Extensive notes, important dates, and a thorough index are appended.”
