about this item

Fiske examines the criminal practice of abducting free citizens of color and selling them into slavery in the years leading up to the U.S. Civil War. He has organized the main body of his text in eight chapters covering the factors that led to and enhanced the business of kidnapping free Black Americans, the kidnappers and their methods, the interactions between kidnappers and slave traders, the ways in which kidnapping was actively fought against, and a wide variety of other related subjects. The author is a librarian and independent scholar. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
