In tracing the life of Anthony Benezet, an 18th-century opponent to slavery and the African slave trade, Brendlinger (church history and theology, George Fox U.) follows the evolution of antislavery activity in America. In addition to Benezet's antislavery tracts, Brendlinger includes Benezet's correspondence with his contemporaries, which provides insights into his relationships and his desire to build a viable network to oppose slavery.
