Description

Whereas one view of US slavery has been that of a primitive economic system that was isolated to the southern states, Edward E. Baptist in his 2014 book “The Half Has Never Been Told” portrays it as a significant part of the booming 19th century capitalist economy, and a major driver of national industrial development and financial integration. Today, 150 years after the Civil War, many of the effects of slavery can still be seen
