Author Jessica A. Gresko provides a comprehensive account of pivotal slave rebellions in the United States that shook the foundations of the slave economy. The result of growing resentment over the conditions of bondage, many rebellions resulted in shaping public opinion against slavery. In the slaveholding areas of the United States, however, rebellions resulted in harsher methods of social control and repression, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. The author discusses the effects? ?of slave rebellions throughout history and covers several important turning points in shifting the political tides against slaveholders. Chapters cover the Amistad rebellion, Denmark Vesey's rebellion, the Stono rebellion, among others, and connects each event to the pertinent conversations surrounding the ethics of slavery at the time of their occurrence.
