Joy Jordan-Lake examines the ways in which antebellum women novelists tried to counter Harriet Beecher Stoweis enormously popular "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by preaching a itheology of whitenessi from within the pages of the books - but were ultimately undermined by their own proslavery agendas. Including a discussion of twentieth- and twenty-first-century novels that revisit plantation mythology, "Whitewashing Uncle Tom's Cabin" casts new light on the ethical and moral disaster of securing one groupis economic strength at the expense of other groupsi access to dignity, compassion, and justice."
