In the Decade before the Civil War, Concord, MA, was a center of abolitionist sentiment and activism. This is the first book to recover and examine the voices, events, and influences of the antebellum antislavery movement in Concord. In addressing fundamental questions about the origin and nature of radical abolitionism in this most American of towns, Sandra Harbert Petrulionis frames the antislavery ideology of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson - two of Concord's most famous residents - as a product of family and community activism and presents the civic context in which their outspoken abolitionism evolved. This book was reviewed in Thoreau Society Bulletin 258, Spring 2007, p. 5.
Cornell University Press, 2007. 233 pp. Hardcover.
