Stolen Childhood, Second Edition : Slave Youth in Nineteenth-Century America Paperback / softback


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 in the 15 years since the first edition.

While the structure of the book remains the same, 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.
