The plantation household was, first and foremost, a site of production. This fundamental fact has generally been overshadowed by popular and scholarly images of the plantation household as the source of slavery's redeeming qualities, where 'gentle' mistresses ministered to 'loyal' slaves. This book recounts a very different story. The very notion of a private sphere, as divorced from the immoral excesses of chattel slavery as from the amoral logic of market laws, functioned to conceal from public scrutiny the day-to-day struggles between enslaved women and their mistresses, subsumed within a logic of patriarchy. One of emancipation's unsung consequences was precisely the exposure to public view of the unbridgeable social distance between the women on whose labor the plantation household relied and the women who employed them. This is a story of race and gender, nation and citizenship, freedom and bondage in the nineteenth century South; a big abstract story that is composed of equally big personal stories.

„Als Kind hatte ich nicht einen Tag ohne Liebe und Zuwendung erlebt. Doch dann, nach all den Jahren, hatte Salma mich komplett zerstört, jedes Gefühl für mein eigenes Selbst. Ich glaubte, dass ich ihre Sklavin war und sie meine Herrin. Ich glaubte an ihre absolute Kontrolle über mich. Ich glaubte, sie hätte die Macht über Leben und Tod.“ Man nannte sie „yebit“ - das arabische Wort für jemand, der es nicht wert ist, einen Namen zu tragen. Sie schlief eingesperrt in einem Verschlag, sie arbeitete Tag und Nacht, sie wurde geschlagen und bekam keinen Pfennig Lohn. Und das Schlimmste: Sie durfte nicht einen Schritt nach draußen tun... Dies ist die Geschichte der jungen Nubafrau Mende Nazer, die nicht etwa vor 200 Jahren spielt, sondern heute, im 21. Jahrhundert. Mendes Geschichte ist durchaus kein Einzelfall. Und sie endet nicht im tiefen Afrika, sondern bei unseren Nachbarn in Europa: Denn am Tiefpunkt einer jahrelangen erniedrigenden Sklavenexistenz in Khartoum wird Mende nach England verschickt - als Sklavin der sudanesischen Botschafterfamilie in London... “Mit ihrer Geschichte hat Mende die Qualen all unserer afrikanischen Schwestern sichtbar gemacht und ihnen dringend notwendige Aufmerksamkeit verschafft. Und bei allem, was Mende durchgemacht hat, sind ihre Kraft und ihre Schönheit ungebrochen.“ Waris Dirie

In the antebellum South, divorce was an explosive issue. As one lawmaker put it, divorce was to be viewed as a form of "madness," and as another asserted, divorce reduced communities to the "lowest ebb of degeneracy." How was it that in this climate, the number of divorces rose steadily during the antebellum era? In Families in Crisis in the Old South, Loren Schweninger uses previously unexplored records to argue that the difficulties these divorcing families faced reveal much about the reality of life in a slave-holding society as well as the myriad difficulties confronted by white southern families who chose not to divorce. Basing his argument on almost 800 divorce cases from the southern United States, Schweninger explores the impact of divorce and separation on white families and on the enslaved and provides insights on issues including domestic violence, interracial adultery, alcoholism, insanity, and property relations. He examines how divorce and separation laws changed, how married women's property rights expanded, how definitions of inhuman treatment of wives evolved, and how these divorces challenged conventional mores.
