In order to fully understand American history, it is essential to know that for nearly two centuries, Americans bought imported Africans and kept them and their descendants in bondage. Slavery lasted so long and controlled so many lives that its sad legacy is still felt today. It is difficult to grasp many aspects of today's United States without learning about slavery's role in people's lives and its development through the years. The six-volume ""Slavery in the Americas"" set takes a fresh look at this core subject. The comprehensive books explain the development, practice, and effects of slavery in the Americas to young readers. Compelling narrative chapters are complemented by special features, such as black-and-white photographs and illustrations, maps and graphs, an index, a glossary, sidebars, fact boxes, further reading, and a timeline. The six volumes include: ""The Slave Trade'; ""Life under Slavery""; ""Slave Rebellions""; ""The Underground Railroad""; ""African Americans during the Civil War""; and, ""African Americans during Reconstruction"".
