Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. In Women s Work, Men s Work, Betty Wood examines the struggle of bondpeople to secure and retain for themselves recognized rights as producers and consumers in the context of the brutal, formal slave economy sanctified by law. Wood examines this struggle in the Georgia lowcountry over a period of eighty years, from the 1750s to the 1830s, when, she argues, the evolution of the system of informal slave economies had reached the point that it would henceforth dominate Savannah s political agenda until the Civil War and emancipation. In considering the quasi-autonomous economic activities of bondpeople, Wood outlines the equally significant but quite different, roles of bondwomen and bondmen in organizing these economies. She also analyzes the influence of evangelical Protestant Christianity on bondpeople, and the effects of the fusion of religious and economic morality on their circumstances. For a combination of practical and religious reasons, Wood finds, informal slave economies, with their impact on whites, became the single most important issue in Savannah politics. She contends that, by the 1820s, bondpeople were instrumental in defining the political agenda of a divided city - a significant, if unintentional, achievement. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : This text examines the struggle of bondpeople to secure and retain for themselves recognised rights as producers and consumers in the context of the brutal, formal slave economy sanctified by the law.

Review: "Solidly grounded in studies of slave societies in the Caribbean as well as the American South."--"Labour/Le Travail"

"Presents a perspective of slave life that up to this point has received little attention."--"Journal of Southwest Georgia History"

"In recent years there has been a shift to investigating the 'internal' or 'informal' economy in which slaves bought, sold, or bartered their own goods. . . . "Women's Work, Men's Work" is a major and superb addition to these studies."--"North Carolina Historical Review"

"Draws upon and makes the most of the available evidence, notably slave narratives, plantation records, municipal archives, and newspapers. And it presents its case in a clearly written, exceedingly well-organized combination of argument, evidence, and informed speculation."--"American Historical Review"

"Carefully researched and fully documented . . . Wood is an able scholar whose study "Slavery in Colonial Georgia, 1730-1775" made a valuable contribution that is now extended with this thoughtful examination of slave life."--"Choice"

"The thousands of bondpersons who people Betty Wood's brilliant study labored long and hard on small parcels of land in their desire to achieve a small degree of quasi independence and better their material condition of life. . . . Provides a worthy model for specialists in other parts of the South to follow."--"Journal of American History"

"Clearly written and well-crafted . . . Superbly reconstructs the informal slave economies of lowcountry Georgia. Hers is a convincing portrait that fills an important gap in our knowledge of bondspeoples' lives."--"Journal of Southern History"
