about this item

Santana presents readers with a comprehensive examination of the life and contribution to abolition of William Lloyd Garrison, the founder of the antislavery newspaper The Liberator, arguing that social and political forces after the U.S. Civil War radically transformed perceptions of the abolitionist movement, Garrison, and the war itself. The author covers the construction and evolution of narratives surrounding Garrison and notions of abolitionist sacrifice, the origins of the Garrison revival, and a wide variety of other related subjects over the book’s four chapters. Santana is a faculty member of Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
