Freedom: Volume I: freedom in the making of western culture

New York: Basic Books, 1991. Hardcover. xviii, 487p., very good first edition in quarter-cloth boards and unclipped dj.

The first of a projected two-volume work, this book by an African American sociologist tackles the contradiction of the idea of freedom with the institution of slavery in western culture, and with it, the debasing of observable social groups - women, foreigners, and others.
