Brycchan Carey, From Peace to Freedom: Quaker Rhetoric and the Birth of American Antislavery (Yale, 2012)

From Peace to Freedom, my most recent book, investigates in detail the origins of antislavery thought within the Society of Friends. It shows how Quakers turned against slavery in the early eighteenth century and became the first organization to take a stand against the slave trade, a stand that led to the antislavery movements of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. From Peace to Freedom is "a major contribution to the history of the rhetoric of antislavery and the development of antislavery thought as explicated in early Quaker writing".
