William H. Williams fills a gap in the literature on slavery in America. This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the 'peculiar institution' in the First State. An excellent text for courses in colonial and antebellum history, Slavery and Freedom in Delaware provides valuable insight into this unfortunate, unforgettable period in the nation's history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Williams has relied on his thorough familiarity with manuscript resources in Delaware to provide readers with a developmental narrative of how slavery and freedom evolved in Delaware, and how the evolution of both affected blacks, whites, and their relationship with one another. Throughout, his authorial voice is moderate, his analysis is anchored in evidence, and his engagement in historiographical controversy is selective but nevertheless interesting and well considered. * Journal of the Early Republic *
A significant contribution to the study of North American slavery. . . . Williams locates his findings within the parameters of recent historiography, highlighting differences and similarities between slavery in Delaware and elsewhere. * Journal of Southern History *
Slavery and Freedom in Delaware is a rigorously researched and well-written study. . . . By focusing on a state not usually identified with the South-indeed, one that all would agree is exceptional-Williams has provided us with a deeper understanding of American slavery. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
A well-researched, well-crafted study. Williams writes in a clear, straightforward style and brings considerable interpretation to a storehouse of information. * CHOICE *
