The Cambridge World History of Slavery

Book description

Slavery and coerced labor have been among the most ubiquitous of human institutions both in time - from ancient times to the present - and in place, having existed in virtually all geographic areas and societies. This volume covers the period from the independence of Haiti to modern perceptions of slavery by assembling twenty-eight original essays, each written by scholars acknowledged as leaders in their respective fields. Issues discussed include the sources of slaves, the slave trade, the social and economic functioning of slave societies, the responses of slaves to enslavement, efforts to abolish slavery continuing to the present day, the flow of contract labor and other forms of labor control in the aftermath of abolition, and the various forms of coerced labor that emerged in the twentieth century under totalitarian regimes and colonialism.

Reviews

'This excellent collection treats slavery as the truly global phenomenon that it was, and still is, and it looks at slavery within a broad range of forms of labor coercion. The editors have pulled together a team of outstanding authors, most of whom are established authorities on the subjects they discuss.'

Martin Klein - University of Toronto

'With revisionary interpretations, this distinguished team of historians has produced an original, compelling and persuasive argument for the centrality of slavery in the shaping of modern history.'

James Walvin - University of York

'This book is a thought-provoking intervention into the history and practices of slavery and other forms of coerced labor since the nineteenth century to the present, covering all parts of the world as well as major topics. It surely will spark a series of significant interdisciplinary debates, while future scholarship will rest on this thoughtful and expansive tome.'

Toyin Falola - Kluge Chair in Countries and Cultures of the South, the Library of Congress

'This volume is brilliantly constructed with contributions from all parts of the world. It draws together the finest work on the history of forced labor between the Haitian Revolution and abolition. It is authoritatively researched, brilliantly presented, and clearly written - a welcome addition in every library.'

Ira Berlin - University of Maryland

'This is a must-read for those interested in a comprehensive survey of nineteenth-century global slavery, its rise, decline, and aftermath. Not just an investigation of 'Second Slavery' in Africa, Asia and the Americas, this formidable volume examines a stunning range of coerced labor systems from a variety of rich perspectives, varying from the demographic to the cultural.'

Philip Morgan - The Johns Hopkins University

A very useful starting point is the recent collection of essays on slavery in the United States and Latin America: Robert Paquette and Mark Smith (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Slavery in the Americas (New York, 2010). This contains excellent essays on many countries and topics of interest and provides a basic 173guide to both the history and historiography of slavery in the Americas. A magisterial study of slavery in world history are the four volumes by David Brion Davis, culminating in his recent The Problem of Slavery in the Age of Emancipation (New York, 2014). The major book on the history of blacks in America from start to date is the ninth edition of John Hope Franklin and Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, From Slavery to Freedom: A History of Black Americans (New York, 2010).

The current debate on the economics of slavery begins with the classic article by Alfred H. Conrad and John R. Meyer , “The Economics of Slavery in the Ante Bellum South,” Journal of Political Economy, 66 (1958): 95130. A major work on various aspects of slavery as an economic institution was Robert William Fogel and Stanley L. Engerman, Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery, 2 vols. (Boston, MA, 1974), which became rather controversial and triggered numerous debates: see Paul A. David, Herbert G. Gutman, Richard Sutch, Peter Temin, and Gavin Wright, Reckoning with Slavery: A Critical Study in the Quantitative History of American Negro Slavery (New York, 1976); Herbert G. Gutman, Slavery and the Numbers Game: A Critique of Time on the Cross (Urbana, IL, 1975); and Gavin Wright, Slavery and American Economic Development (Baton Rouge, LA, 2006). In turn, it was defended by Robert Fogel, Without Consent or Contract: The Rise and Fall of American Slavery (New York, 1989).

For the end of slavery and its aftermath, see Robert Higgs , Competition and Coercion: Blacks in the American Economy, 1865–1914 (Cambridge, 1977); and Roger L. Ransom and Richard Sutch, One Kind of Freedom: The Economic Consequences of Emancipation (Cambridge, 1977). For an excellent discussion of post-emancipation black economic developments, see Robert A. Margo, “Obama, Katrina and the Persistence of Racial Inequality,” Journal of Economic History, 76 (2016): 301–41.
