(Ballantine Books) - (2005) - (Hard Cover - W/Dust Jacket) - (Used - Very Good - (Plus) - (Very Good - (Plus) - (Northern Slavery, Commentary) 

This starling and deeply researched volume reveals how the North (like the South) was a place where thousands of Africans were held in bondage, and slavery was both an economic dynamo and necessary way of life. Complicity also reveals the cruel truth about the Triangle Trade of molasses, rum, and slaves that lucratively linked the North to the West Indies and Africa; As it discloses the reality of Northern empires built on the profits from rum, cotton, and ivory - and which were operated, in some cases, by abolitionists; and it exposes the thousand-acre plantations that existed in towns such as Salem, Connecticut.
