9781469626536: Freedom's Frontier: California and the Struggle over Unfree Labor, Emancipation, and Reconstruction

Most histories of the Civil War era portray the struggle over slavery as a conflict that exclusively pitted North against South, free labor against slave labor, and black against white. In Freedom's Frontier, Stacey L. Smith examines the battle over slavery as it unfolded on the multiracial Pacific Coast. Despite its antislavery constitution, California was home to a dizzying array of bound and semibound labor systems: African American slavery, American Indian indenture, Latino and Chinese contract labor, and a brutal sex traffic in bound Indian and Chinese women. Using untapped legislative and court records, Smith reconstructs the lives of California's unfree workers and documents the political and legal struggles over their destiny as the nation moved through the Civil War, emancipation, and Reconstruction.
Smith reveals that the state's anti-Chinese movement, forged in its struggle over unfree labor, reached eastward to transform federal Reconstruction policy and national race relations for decades to come. Throughout, she illuminates the startling ways in which the contest over slavery's fate included a western struggle that encompassed diverse labor systems and workers not easily classified as free or slave, black or white.

Review :

A pleasure to read. Smith makes a significant contribution to the growing literature on the antebellum West and the complicated story of human bondage that unifies western history with our national history of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction.--Oregon Historical Quarterly
A concise, thoughtful, and well-written work that highlights Californians' lived experiences. . . . A foundation for future studies of child labor and the exploration of California's contributions to debates over land, labor, gender, and empire in the United States in the 19th century.--Journal of African American History
A long overdue and urgently needed synthesis. . . . A splendid example of traditional archival-based historical research.--Journal of Interdisciplinary History
Recommended. All levels/libraries.--Choice
Freedom's Frontier is [not only] thoroughly researched, but it is also well written and a pleasure to read.--Oregon Historical Quarterly
Adds an entirely new dimension to California's history. . . . Recommended for classroom use as well as for researchers and the casual reader interested in California's diverse past.--Colonial Latin American Historical Review
A welcome addition to both the history of California and the West and to the history of the Civil War and Reconstruction.--Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Smith's analysis is cogent and detailed, and her arguments are solid. The book is a welcome addition to both the history of California and the West and to the history of the Civil War and Reconstruction.--Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Indispensable reading for historians of slavery, the Civil War era, and the American West." --Journal of the Civil War Era
An innovative and rigorous study of race, labor, and politics that skillfully addresses and integrates histories of slavery and the American West.--Journal of Southern History
