Sinha's Book Selected as One of 'Ten Books You Need to Read'

 Former member of the board and ISHA fellow Manisha Sinha's book, The Counterrevolution of Slavery: Politics and Identity in Antebellum South Carolina, was selected by Harvard historian Sven Beckert as one of "Ten Books on Slavery You Need to Read" in POLITICO

Counterrevolution was Sinha's first book, and in it revisits the roots of southern separatism, arguing that instead of a fight for white liberty, the movement was a "conservative, antidemocratic movement to protect and perpetuate racial slavery."
