This is an abridgement of the Pulitzer-Prize winning The Dred Scott Case, making Fehrenbacher’s monumental work available to a wider audience. Although it condenses the original by half, all the chapters and major themes of the larger work have been retained, providing a masterful review of the issues before America on the eve of the Civil War.
