black titles spine; "The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831, and the savage reprisals that followed, shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master, and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the bloodbath of the Civil War. Now a professional historian and biographer has assembled all available evidence to present a gripping and insightful account of the rebellion, the complex, gifted and driven man who led it, the social conditions that produced it, and the legacy it left. Here is the dramatic re-creation of that stormy period which marked a crucial turning point in America's history. A much needed correction to historical fantasies .... grounded in the facts and excellently documented, this volume is essential for students of slavery and of the history of violence in America."; previous owner's name on front endpaper; including index - 214 pages Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.
