This abridgment makes Fehrenbacher's monumental work available to a wider audience. The text has been reduced to about half its original size, and documentation is omitted. This abridgment nevertheless covers all the major themes of the original work.
This is an abridgement of the Pulitzer-Prize winning The Dred Scott Case, making Fehrenbacher's monumental work available to a wider audience. Although it condenses the original by half, all the chapters and major themes of the larger work have been retained, providing a masterful review of the issues before America on the eve of the Civil War.
"This magisterial study is a triumph of scholarship....Must reading for anyone interested in American legal history or the Civil War."--Virginia Quarterly Review
