Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law


(click for the page with more information and a button to register for free access)


Excerpt from the 5 October 2016 email announcement from Kevin M. Marmion, President, William S. Hein & Co., Inc.:


“William S. Hein & Co., Inc. has released the newest HeinOnline collection, Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law. This collection [was] developed under the direction of Paul Finkelman, Ariel F. Sallows Visiting Professor of Human Rights Law at the University of Saskatchewan College of Law…The crisis revolving around race relations in America and the recent events surrounding this crisis have made the Hein Company rethink the idea of financially profiting from the sale of a collection on slavery...By providing complimentary access to Slavery in America and the World [to libraries, institutions, students, researchers, or any other entity within the global community], a wide audience has an opportunity to be more informed about the history of slavery and the pain of racism.” 

Note that the registration form offers you the option of donating if you wish, but you can opt out.  Also there’s a CAPTCHA (they sorta annoy me, so a heads-up for others who feel the same):
