Spaces of Freedom in North America
The introduction explains the changing geography of slavery and freedom in North America in the Age of Revolutions, specifically the development of various “spaces of freedom” throughout the continent, and how this affected patterns of slave flight. It further provides a brief overview of the purpose and contents of the book and positions this volume within the academic literature on runaway slaves. It also looks at issues related to what Dale Tomich calls “the second slavery,” manumission, and the abolition of slavery.
