About the Book

Published in 1852, Uncle Tom’s Cabinis an account of the trials and tribulations of the eponymous character and other slaves in antebellum America, and is a testament to the fact that literature can bring about social change. This edition of the novel seeks to bring the tale of Uncle Tom to contemporary readers. Meticulously edited and annotated, this edition features a detailed introduction providing contextual and thematic information. The novel is further supplemented by two essays—a nineteenth-century critical response to the novel soon after it was published, and an erudite critical study by Kenneth Hada that presents a modern-day perspective.
