With that, then, let us consider this, the first of these endeavors. This chapter opens by pointing out a fundamental contradiction in early American values that prized liberty yet perpetuated slavery. This contradiction is, Davis says, a paradox. American society rested on the irresolvable contradiction between celebrating freedom and denying freedom. This contradiction might reflect the difference between ideal and reality. Europeans viewed the New World as a wilderness of paradise unspoiled by the corrupting institutions and materialisms of Europe.

Though historians continue to debate the numbers, it now seems probable that from twelve to fifteen million Africans were forcibly shipped out from their continent by sea. Millions more perished in African wars or raids for enslavement and in the deadly transport of captives from the interior to slave markets on the coast. The participants in the Atlantic slave system included Arabs, Berbers, scores of African ethnic groups, Italians, Portuguese, Spaniards, Dutch, Jews, Germans, Swedes, French, English, Danes, white Americans, Native Americans, and even thousands of New World blacks who had been emancipated or were descended from freed slaves but who then became slaveholding farmers or planters themselves. Today it is both remarkable and deeply disturbing to discover that this Atlantic slave system evoked little if any meaningful protest until the late eighteenth century.
The massive tome encompassed pages—it was a time when university presses were not as inclined to urge junior faculty to slash manuscripts as they are today—and earned its young author, David Brion Davis, the Pulitzer Prize. Since then, Professor Davis, now the Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University, has written or co-authored more than a dozen works on slavery and freedom, most of them as imposing as his first.

The s in particular witnessed an explosion of monographs and anthologies on every imaginable aspect of slavery, both ancient and modern. But a truly comprehensive synthesis that reached beyond North America remained unavailable, largely because few single authors enjoyed the breadth of knowledge to craft one.
Charlestonian Jews have been characterised as the pre-eminent American community of the antebellum period, composed of the most educated, refined and prosperous individuals, who were accepted politically and socially into the fabric of white middle class society.
