An outstanding leader of the Negro people and one of the most brilliant minds of his time, Frederick Douglass spoke and wrote on all the major issues confronting the American people. The Pre-Civil War Decade, the second of five volumes in his collected works, brings together for the first time his writings and speeches during this important and turbulent period. In addition his editor Dr. Philip S. Foner, has written a full-length, authoritative biography of Douglass.
Douglass’ crusade against slavery, the strategy and tactics of the Abolitionist movement, the Kansas-Nebraska Act, the life and death of John Brown, the founding of the Republican Party and the elections of 1852 and 1860 are among the subjects Douglass analyzed incisively during this period.
