Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Genovese's view of the Old South may or may not ultimately prevail, but ... The Political Economy of Slavery is one of those books that rearrange basic concepts, so that even though debate continues, it no longer travels over the same tracks.... Genovese's context is rich, his mind acute, his learning extensive."

-- David M. Potter, Saturday Review

"What is original in Mr. Genovese's highly stimulating volume is the analysis of the ante bellum political, economic, and social structure as a closed system with a built-in (and most un-American) resistance to change.... [It] will move the discussion of the ante bellum South to a new level of sophistication."

-- Anne Firor Scott, The South Atlantic Quarterly

"He has given new life to the study of Southern history."

-- William N. Parker, Economic History Review

"The work is original and quite persuasive." — The New Yorker

"Genovese has combined elegance of expression and originality of analysis in a remarkable book."

-- Leonard Bloom, Journal of Modern African Studies
