CHOICE ReviewThis work is the abridged, less costly alternative to the editors' three-volume Slave Culture: A Documentary Collection of the Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers' Project (CH, Nov'14, 52-1195). Both titles present Federal Writers' Project slave narratives that have been excerpted and arranged thematically. Due to its condensed nature, Memories of the Enslaved does not offer all of the subtopics or narratives published in the larger project, but the two works share many identical excerpts. The Federal Writers' Project, which was undertaken in 1936-38 to record these narratives and yielded some 2,300 first-person accounts and hundreds of black-and-white photographs, suffered from serious limitations (including issues of memory, racial disparities between the subjects and their interviewers, and the faithfulness of reporting). These considerations have been well documented here and in Paul Escott's Slavery Remembered: A Record of Twentieth-Century Slave Narratives (1979). Nonetheless, the narrative records still retain great value as primary sources, and novice researchers will no doubt appreciate the simplified, thematic introduction in new text. Serious researchers may wish to access the complete accounts preserved in the Library of Congress's American Memory website (CH, Dec'05, 43-2404) or The American Slave: A Composite Autobiography, ed. by George P. Rawick (CH, Jul'78), with supplemental volumes. Summing Up: Recommended. High school, community college, and undergraduate students. --Lauren Stern, SUNY Cortland
