Publisher Description

An updated edition of the classic study that took “an enormous step toward filling some of the voids in the literature of slavery” (The Washington Post Book World).

One of the most important books published on slave society, Stolen Childhood focuses on the millions of children and youth enslaved in 19th-century America. This enlarged and revised edition reflects the abundance of new scholarship on slavery that has emerged.

Wilma King has expanded its scope to include the international dimension with a new chapter on the transatlantic trade in African children, and the book’s geographic boundaries now embrace slave-born children in the North. She includes data about children owned by Native Americans and African Americans, and presents new information about children’s knowledge of and participation in the abolitionist movement and the interactions between enslaved and free children.
“A jarring snapshot of children living in bondage. This compellingly written work is a testament to the strength and resilience of the children and their parents.”—Booklist on the first edition
