Does Robert Barsky deal Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom Cabin or Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp or another person dealing with slavery?

Ediberto Roman

Great question Al--it has been too long. I will forward it to Robert and let him address your question. I was asked to review it, and still await my copy. But from prior conversations and reading some of his other work, I suspect Robert's focus on Refugee law may take up the bulk of his analysis here. Let's see what he says, and perhaps what I find from my draft.

Robert F. Barsky

Greetings, and thanks for your query! I have a long discussion of Aphra Behn’s Oroonoko, (1688), which describes the horrors of the transatlantic slave trade. I also discuss works by James Baldwin, Alice Walker, and Toni Morrison, -- notably Paradise.
