The Fearless Benjamin Lay: The Quaker Dwarf who became the First Revolutionary Abolitionist

Marcus Rediker

Mr. Rediker went to the University of Pennsylvania for graduate study, earning an M.A. and Ph.D. in history. He
taught at Georgetown University from 1982 to 1994, lived in Moscow for a year (1984-5), and is currently
Distinguished Professor of Atlantic History at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also Senior Research
