About this item

Reynolds' book as a whole paints a positive portrait of the Calvinist terrorist –– contrary to virtually all recent scholarship which tends to depict Brown as a bloodthirsty zealot and madman who briefly stepped into history but did little to influence it. The focus of this biography is Brown's commitment to the cause of abolition, and Reynolds credits Brown for framing the issue of slavery in stark, uncompromising terms.
