Shane White creatively uses a remarkable array of primary
sources--census data, tax lists, city directories, diaries,
newspapers and magazines, and courtroom testimony--to reconstruct
the content and context of the slave's world in New York and its
environs during the revolutionary and early republic periods. White
explores, among many things, the demography of slavery, the decline
of the institution during and after the Revolution, racial
attitudes, acculturation, and free blacks' "creative adaptation to
an often hostile world."
