Uncle Tom's Cabin Harriet Beecher Stowe read online review & book description:

Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in 1852, the novel had a profound effect on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States, so much so in the latter case that the novel intensified the sectional conflict leading to the American Civil War.

Stowe, a Connecticut-born teacher at the Hartford Female Academy and an active abolitionist, focused the novel on the character of Uncle Tom, a long-suffering Black slave around whom the stories of other characters—both fellow slaves and slave owners—revolve. The sentimental novel depicts the cruel reality of slavery while also asserting that Christian love can overcome something as destructive as enslavement of fellow human beings.

    I will never again view our nation's history the way I did before reading this book. A scathing indictment on man's inhumanity to man, a rejoicing in the occasional successful escape from hell, and bright spotlight on religion's role in the condoning, encouraging, and justification for slavery - this book should be required reading for every high school student in America.
