American History

The American History Book Club will discuss The Fires of Jubilee: Nat Turner's Fierce Rebellion by Stephen Oates (Harper, $14.99). The bloody slave rebellion led by Nat Turner in Virginia in 1831 and the savage reprisals that followed shattered beyond repair the myth of the contented slave and the benign master, and intensified the forces of change that would plunge America into the Civil War. The true story behind the major motion picture The Birth of a Nation, this acclaimed and definitive history is now reissued with the complete text of Turner s riveting firsthand account, The Confessions of Nat Turner.
