New studies in Southern history.
"This study examines how slaves in antebellum Virginia, through physical confrontations with whites, fought to reassert some measure of control over their day-to-day lives. The author analyzes how while this violence came at a high cost, it also ensured the preservation of their humanity and set limits on their enslavement"-- Provided by publisher.
