Probing the colonial history of New York City, Thelma Foote examines the broadly shared belief that black slavery and antiblack racism were marginal to the experience of northern colonies in British North America. In this study of Dutch and English New York, she demonstrates that racial domination was a key foundation of society and culture in the seaport community and examines the interrelationship of racial tensions and breakdowns in colonial governance.
