Publisher Comments:

Widely regarded as the most comprehensive study of its kind, this volume offers valuable insight into the alleged medical differences between whites and blacks that translated as racial inferiority and were used to justify slavery and discrimination.<P>In Medicine and Slavery, Todd L. Savitt evaluates the diet, hygiene, clothing, and living and working conditions of antebellum African Americans, slave and free, and analyzes the diseases and health conditions that afflicted them in urban areas, at industrial sites, and on plantations.

Review:

"This book is superb. Carefully researched and documented, well-written and fascinating, it will be invaluable to anyone interested in slavery in Virginia or elsewhere. Savitt examines malaria, worms, insanity, and other diseases which attacked blacks before the Civil War and assesses what it was about the nature of slavery and the physiology of blacks which made their health care profoundly different from that of whites. In doing so, he provides new ammunition for both sides in the historiographical debate about the care of slaves." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
