About the Author

William H. Williams is southern coordinator of the University of Delaware's Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program and professor of history in the Del Tech/University of Delaware Parallel Program in Georgetown, Delaware.


Williams has relied on his thorough familiarity with manuscript resources in Delaware to provide readers with a developmental narrative of how slavery and freedom evolved in Delaware, and how the evolution of both affected blacks, whites, and their relationship with one another. Throughout, his authorial voice is moderate, his analysis is anchored in evidence, and his engagement in historiographical controversy is selective but nevertheless interesting and well considered. * Journal of the Early Republic *
A significant contribution to the study of North American slavery. . . . Williams locates his findings within the parameters of recent historiography, highlighting differences and similarities between slavery in Delaware and elsewhere. * Journal of Southern History *
Slavery and Freedom in Delaware is a rigorously researched and well-written study. . . . By focusing on a state not usually identified with the South-indeed, one that all would agree is exceptional-Williams has provided us with a deeper understanding of American slavery. * H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online *
A well-researched, well-crafted study. Williams writes in a clear, straightforward style and brings considerable interpretation to a storehouse of information. * CHOICE *
