Reviews

"The Afterlife of John Brown is an intelligent and searching enquiry into the contemporary and posthumous reception of the abolitionist John Brown's life, political activism, and death. It helps us to see how divergent, complex, and troubling were the issues that Brown's clarity of purpose posed to an American culture - white and black, Northern and Southern - which found it difficult to live with moral clarity." - Michael O'Brien, University of Cambridge
