'This is a book that should be on the reading list of every course on American history or literature...with its excellent notes, bibliography and appendices, this supersedes other versions available in paperback.' Adam Lively, Times Educational Supplement This new edition of the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass is the first prepared especially for American history courses. David W. Blight's extensive introduction and the related materials he provides place the Narrative in both its historical and literary contexts. The book also includes a chronology of Douglass's life, a bibliography, questions for consideration, illustrations, and an index. 'David Blight's introduction to the Narrative provides a rich path into Frederick Douglass's own wonderful story'. William S. McFeely, author of Frederick Douglass.
