New slavery bibliography at Ratio Juris

Over at the Ratio Juris blog, Patrick O'Donnell (Santa Barbara City College) has updated his impressive list of online research bibliographies. The latest addition, assembled with help from Al Brophy (UNC) and Allen Mendenhall (Auburn), is on slavery.

The 14-page bibliography takes a broad view of the subject: it includes comparative and transnational perspectives, scholarship on abolition and emancipation, and a few things on contemporary reparations debates.

The list is also useful for rounding up new work. Here are some of the more recent titles on the list (I've excluded ones that we've mentioned recently on the blog):

Thank you Karen.

Not surprisingly, I missed a title: Earl M. Maltz, Fugitive Slave on Trial: The Anthony Burns Case and Abolitionist Outrage. Lawrence, KS: University Press of Kansas, 2010.

Some Legal History readers may also be interested in the next compilation (forthcoming anon) on "socio-political conflict resolution and nonviolence."
