It is rare, these days, for academic historians to tackle really big issues in history, and even rarer to do this in a short format and easy-to-read style. Morgan's American Slavery American Freedom is not short, but it is easy-to-read and tackles one of the biggest conundrums of American history: how could the British North American colonies give rise to such a wonderful institution as republican government, at the same time as such an awful institution as race slavery? The answer, for Morgan, is that these two institutions are more closely related than one might first think. While not every reader will agree with Morgan's conclusions, I believe most will find the book very worthwhile. It is the kind of book that both arm-chair historians and academic (office-chair?) historians will enjoy: well-written, entertaining, and containing an intriguing argument.
