This volume explores the significant connections between the Quaker
community and the abolitionist cause in America. The case studies
that make up the collection mainly focus on the greater
Philadelphia area, a hotbed of the abolitionist movement and the
location of the first American abolition society founded in 1775.
Despite the importance of Quakers to the abolitionist movement,
their significance has been largely overlooked in the existing
historiography. These studies will be of interest to scholars of
slavery and abolition, religious history, Atlantic studies and
American social and political history.
