"Received historical wisdom casts abolitionists as bourgeois, mostly white
reformers burdened by racial paternalism and economic conservatism. Manisha
Sinha overturns this image, broadening her scope beyond the antebellum
period usually associated with abolitionism and recasting it as a radical
social movement in which men and women, black and white, free and enslaved
found common ground in causes ranging from feminism and utopian socialism
to anti-imperialism and efforts to defend the rights of labor."
