Without Consent or Contract: The Rise and Fall of American Slavery

by

Without Consent or Contract: The Rise and Fall of American Slavery Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past quarter-century, Robert William Fogel has blazed new trails in scholarship on the lives of the slaves in the American South. Now he presents the dramatic rise and fall of the "peculiar institution," as the abolitionist movement rose into a powerful political force that pulled down a seemingly impregnable system.

Synopsis:

"[Fogel's] exceedingly careful testing of all possible sources and his pioneering methodological approach have allowed [him] both to increase our knowledge of an institutions operation and disintegration and to renew our methods of research." --from the citation to Robert William Fogel for the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

About the Author

Robert William Fogel, winner of the 1993 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science, is director of the Center for Population Economics at the University of Chicago.
