Stedman’s narrative was published by Joseph Johnson, a radical figure of who received many criticisms for the types of books he chose to distribute. After establishing his business in London, which focused on religious works, he began to support of the French Revolution. In 1790’s, more than 50% of works Johnson published were political, including Stedman’s ,Narrative, of a Five Years' Expedition, Against the Revolted Negroes of Surinam (1796). He chose to publish books that supported the rights of slaves, Jews, women, prisoners and other oppressed society. Not only did Johnson voice his opinion by the topic of books he published but he physically voiced his thoughts by being a member of the Society for Constitutional Information, which was attempting to reform Parliament. Johnson was condemned in part for the support and publication name of writers who voiced a liberal call. Such include, Mary Wollstonecraft, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine.
