THIS best-selling novel of the 19th century was first published in 1852. It is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. It had a significant influence on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States, even to the extent of intensifing conflicts leading to the American Civil War. Stowe, a Connecticut-born teacher, described the life, trevails and circumstances of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering Black slave, and fellow slaves and slave owners. Although this novel contains material about our past that is now perhaps somewhat uncomfortable to be reminded of, that very discomfort shows that we should be reminded of it.
This is quite an extensive novel running to more than 500 pages in this unabridged single volume edition.
