Description du livre The Perseus Books Group, United States, 2014. Hardback. État : New. 236 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Americans tend to cast slavery as a pre-modern institution--the nation s original sin, perhaps, but isolated in time and divorced from America s later success. But to do so robs the millions who suffered in bondage of their full legacy. As historian Edward Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence. Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery s end--and created a culture that sustains America s deepest dreams of freedom.

Description du livre Basic Books, 2014. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Wall Street Journal "Abolitionists were contemptuous of such self-serving nonsense, but they too tended to see slavery as an economically inefficient, and morally reprehensible, hangover from the premodern past. In The Half Has Never Been Told, Edward E. Baptist takes passionate issue with such assumptions. He asserts that slavery was neither inherently inefficient nor a counterpoint to capitalism. Rather, he says, it was woven inextricably into the transnational fabric of early 19th-century capitalism.Baptist writes with verve and a good eye for the dramatic." Los Angeles Times "An ambitious new economic and social history of antebellum America.The overwhelming power of the stories that Baptist recounts and the plantation-level statistics he's compiled give his book the power of truth and revelation. The Half Has Never Been Told is a fresh. take on a history we thought we knew too well -- the history of a people who were victimized by a medieval brand of capitalism but survived.Baptist adds many new, stark and essential elements to that story. His most important achievement is to show us how the dismal science' of economics served to make the lot of slaves even grimmer." Nation "Wonderful. Baptist provides meticulous, extensive and comprehensive evidence that capitalism and the wealth it created was absolutely dependent on the forced labor of Africans and African-Americans, downplaying culturalist arguments for Western prosperity." Kirkus "A substantial new history--possibly the most important work on slavery in a generation." Booklist, starred review "Baptist renders history and economics with the power of prose that seeks to tell a fuller story than has been told of American slavery.An insightful look at U.S. slavery and its controversial role in the much-celebrated story of American capitalism." Library Journal , starred review "Baptist has written a book that truly deepens and broadens our understanding of slavery. Professional historians and lay readers will pore over this book for years to come. Essential for all readers interested in American history and the history of slavery." Publishers Weekly "An unapologetic, damning, and grisly account of slavery's foundational place in the emergence of America as a global superpower, balancing the macro lens of statistics and national trends with intimate slave narratives. Delivered in a voice that fluidly incorporates both academic objectivity and coarse language. Baptist's chronicle exposes the taint of blood in virtually all of the wealth that Americans have inherited from their forebears, making it a rewarding read for anyone interested in U.S.A.'s dark history." Kirkus , starred review "A.myth-busting work that pursues how the world profited from American slavery. This is a complicated story involving staggering scholarship that adds greatly to our understanding of the history of the United States." Edward Ball, author of Slaves in the Family "This book reveals a dirty secret about American business, and how commerce first boomed before the Civil War. Baptist unearths a big, nasty story: in the North and the South, slavery was the tainted fuel that kindled the fires of U.S. capitalism and made the country grow." Edward Ayers, President of Richmond University and author of the Bancroft Prize-winning In the Presence of Mine Enemies: Civil War in the Heart of America "This book, quite simply, offers the fullest and most powerful account we have of the evolution of slavery in the United States from the Revolution to the Civil War. Baptist's account is eloquent, humane, passionate, and necessary." Peniel Joseph, Founding Director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at Tufts University, and author of Stokely: A Life " The Half Has Never Been Told is a true marvel. Groundbreaking, thoroughly researched, expansive, and provocative it will force scholars of slavery and its aftermath to reconside. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_046500296X
