It’s been a long time since I posted either a book review or anything that I wrote for a class, so I’m posting in PDF form the review I just did of Mind of the Master Class for one of my history classes here at TEDS.
I’m torn between giving this one an A- or an A. In the end I’ve settled on A because, in spite of the flaws I listed, I still think it’s a pretty amazing and well-done book. Quintessential reading if you’re interested in the history of slavery in the United States or the history of the antebellum South.
