The Advancement of the Antislavery Movement Through Print Culture in Antebellum America

Focusing on the US antebellum period, this book connects the spheres of antislavery, antebelllum print culture, and the marketplace. Most broadly, "Selling Antislavery" examines how the subject of slavery became a marketable commodity in the antebellum period. Specifically, it details how antislavery capitalized on new modes of technology and consumerism to distribute and promote its argument. "Selling Antislavery" offers one of the first book-length examinations of US antislavery print culture and contributes to our understanding of the contours of the antebellum print marketplace and its greater Atlantic connections.
