New Database: HeinOnline’s Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law

We are pleased to be able to offer a new database to the Seton Hall University Community:

HeinOnline’s Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law http://heinonline.org/HOL/Index?collection=slavery

This unique collection brings together a multitude of essential legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. This includes: every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, all reported state and federal cases on slavery, and every English-language legal commentary on slavery published before 1920, which includes many essays and articles in obscure, hard-to-find journals in the United States and elsewhere.

Also included are more than a thousand pamphlets and books on slavery from the 19th century, modern histories of slavery, all modern law review articles on the subject, as well as word searchable access to all Congressional debates from the Continental Congress to 1880.
