New HeinOnline Database on Slavery in America and the World

heinonlineslavery3By Wendy Moore

The new HeinOnline Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law collection brings together essential legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. This collection includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery. There are more than a thousand pamphlets and books on slavery from the 19th century, including every English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, which includes many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere. In addition, there are also many modern histories of slavery, including a section containing all modern law review articles on the subject. This collection will continue to grow, not only from new scholarship but also from additional historical material.

Because HeinOnline is dedicated to the dissemination of information on this important subject and they felt it would be inappropriate for them as a company to profit from this resource, the HeinOnline Slavery in America and the World collection is provided at no cost to researchers and institutions requesting access.
