Presents a narrative history of the thirty-year struggle to outlaw slavery in the USA, starting with the founding of the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1834 and extending until the abolition of slavery in the United States at the end of the Civil War.


Thomas Mitchell is the author of Indian Fighters Turned American Politicians (Greenwood, 2003), Liberal Parties in Settler Conflicts (Greenwood, 2002), and Native vs. Settler: Ethnic Conflict in Israel/Palestine, Northern Ireland, and South Africa (Greenwood, 2000).


"This history of the abolitionist movement in the United States focuses on the successes and failures of the movement within the electoral arena and, upon the electoral success of the Republican Party and the outbreak of the Civil War, within the political arena of government. It thus looks at the failures of the Liberty Party and the Free Soil Party/Free Democrats to achieve successes as third parties due to the nature of the American political system, party strategies, and political exigencies and the contrasting success of the more internally coherent Republicans to become a replacement second party for the Whigs, partly due to an atmosphere where Northerners felt more threatened by the Slave Power than in prior times and partly because they had a broader range of issues with which to attract supporters." - Reference & Research Book News
