A tour de force. * American Literature *
American historians, especially historians of the South, will learn much from Secenes of Subjection * The Journal of American History *
...a profoundly important subject...the author explores anew the calculated use of both blatantly overt and seemingly subtler forms of control over black bodies and black psyches. * Mississippi Quarterly *
Well worth close attention, however, since Hartman relies o n extensive and intensive scholarly research to challenge the apparently major distinctions between slavery and emancipation and to encourage our recognition that there have been no dramatic historical turning points for black Americans." Journal of Southern History
