Jonathan Wells review in Civil War History
"Garrison’s faith in democracy, even as it seemed entirely unwarranted on the issue of emancipation, is the common thread that weaves the many stories of transatlantic reform together. This reviewer learned a great deal from McDaniel’s careful, rich, and wide-ranging study, especially on the international dimensions of democratic and abolitionist reform."

David Sim's Review in ANCH
"the book that McDaniel has written will undoubtedly become a staple text on undergraduate and graduate reading lists, both for nineteenth-century survey courses and more specialized courses on abolitionism and transatlantic relations. In all, The Problem of Democracy in an Age of Slavery is a fine piece of scholarship that combines empirical detail, sure-handed interpretation, and clarity of purpose to underline the importance of an engaged and active citizenry in bringing about progressive change."

Review in Journal of the Early Republic
"W. Caleb McDaniel’s excellent account of Garrisonian abolitionists presents the antislavery crusaders as they saw themselves: as intellectual activists (or activist intellectuals) fighting for liberty on a global stage. In showing how the Garrisonians’ philosophical outlook and reformist agitation were mutually reinforcing, McDaniel has made a significant contribution to the fields of nineteenth-century social and intellectual history."
