Abstract

revival prompted by the war to be understated in Ambivalent Nation, as is the role of African American lecturers greeted with such enthusiasm around the British Isles. There is no mention of “Her Majesty’s coloured subjects” in the dominions who contested racial stereotypes by demand- ing their rights as British citizens. Elites, particularly those in London, expressed growing admiration for the Confederacy, but elsewhere (par- ticularly in the north and outside English borders) a majority opposed the Confederacy and professed their contempt for a society built on slavery. In late 1862 and throughout 1863, emancipation societies organized pub- lic meetings that endorsed not only abolition but the civil rights of freed slaves.

Dubrulle makes important arguments that all scholars will need to take account of. David Brown david brown is a senior lecturer in American history at the University of Manchester and the author of Southern Outcast: Hinton Rowan Helper and “The Impending Crisis of the
