Beschreibung

In the history of slavery and its legacy, John Brown looms large as a righteous if bloody hero whose deeds partly precipitated the Civil War. As Frederick Douglass wrote: "When John Brown stretched forth his arm...the clash of arms was at hand". A stern, violent figure, Brown led the famous raid on Harper's Ferry in 1859, and was executed in Charleston in that year. DuBois's biography shows how Brown embodied - literally and allegorically - the American racial dilemma writ large. Leading Americanist David Roediger has written a new introduction for this edition, and has edited and chosen commentary for it.
