Slavery and Anti-Slavery is a digital archive in four series devoted to the study and understanding of the history of slavery in America. Part I: Debates over Slavery and Abolition is a scholarly collection of approximately 1.5 million pages of primary source documents focussing on the abolitionist movement and the conflicts within it, the anti- and pro-slavery arguments of the period, and the debates on the subject of colonisation. The collection assembles a wide variety of materials - more than 7,000 books and pamphlets, 80 newspaper and periodical titles, and a dozen major manuscript collections. Varied sources — from well-known journals to private papers, monographs, pamphlets, manuscripts and periodicals - explore the economic, gender, legal, religious, and government issues surrounding the slavery debate.
Future series will be:
Part II Slave Trade in the Atlantic World
Part III Institution of Slavery in the United States
Part IV Age of Emancipation
