The Slavery Debates, 1952-1990.
A Retrospective.Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 2003 Stock Code: 96392
First edition, first impression. Signed by the author on the half-title. During this period, a fierce debate raged in the US concerning the interpretation of the slavery era, partly ignited by Fogel and Engerman's 1974 publication, Time on the Cross, in which they concluded that slavery was a profitable and efficient labour system, with benefits for some African-Americans in the antebellum period, and led to condemnation and accusations of racism. Here, Fogel offers a conclusion to his work on the subject, and also offers a "personal, retrospective meditation" (p. ix).
Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in red, grey endpapers. With the dust jacket.
A fine copy in the bright jacket.
