内容紹介

“A thought-provoking piece of scholarship that sheds light on the complex history of slave breeding in America. Smithers’s book will be hotly debated in the profession.”—Michael L. Ondaatje, University of Newcastle, Australia

“As engaging as it is compelling, bold, and captivating, Smithers’s Slave Breeding pulls the reader through its pages with heart-wrenching exposition of the dark and ugly chapter of what could rightly be characterized as the sexual zeitgeist of American national history.”—Tunde Adeleke, Iowa State University

For over two centuries, the topic of slave breeding has occupied a controversial place in the master narrative of American history. From nineteenth-century abolitionists to twentieth-century filmmakers and artists, Americans have debated whether slave owners deliberately and coercively manipulated the sexual practices and marital status of enslaved African Americans to reproduce new generations of slaves for profit. 

In this bold and provocative book, historian Gregory Smithers investigates how African Americans have narrated, remembered, and represented slave-breeding practices. He argues that while social and economic historians have downplayed the significance of slave breeding, African Americans have refused to forget the violence and sexual coercion associated with the plantation South. By placing African American histories and memories of slave breeding within the larger context of America’s history of racial and gender discrimination, Smithers sheds much-needed light on African American collective memory, racialized perceptions of fragile black families, and the long history of racially motivated violence against men, women, and children of color.


レビュー

The depth of scholarship in this book is remarkable; integrating an impressive array of historiography and a judicious use of primary sources, such as the WPA Slave Narratives, Smithers effectively weaves the story of slave breeding into American and African American history from the nineteenth century to the present. "The Historian"
"

Bold and evocative. . . ."Slave Breeding" represents a significant contribution to the literature of American slavery that will be of considerable interest to students of the antebellum South as well as historians of women, gender, the family, and sexuality. "Register of the Kentucky Historical Society""

Most Americans would agree that slavery existed, but they might have wildly different ideas about what slavery was like and what legacy it left. In "Slave Breeding," Gregory D. Smithers exposes how these divergent views developed by tracing two historical threads: the vernacular history of a largely African American community and a professional history of primarily white, male historians. H-Net Reviews
