Closer To Freedom
Softcover printing of “Closer to Freedom Enslaved Women and Everyday Resistance in the Plantation South” by Stephanie M.H. Camp. In very good used condition. Wear and yellowing of pages consistent with age and use.
Recent scholarship on slavery has explored the lives of enslaved people beyond the watchful eye of their masters. Building on this work and the study of space, social relations, gender, and power in the Old South, Stephanie Camp examines the everyday containment and movement of enslaved men and, especially, enslaved women. In her investigation of the movement of bodies, objects, and information, Camp extends our recognition of slave resistance into new arenas and reveals an important and hidden culture of opposition.
