New York Times Book Review
In keeping with the approach of the new historians of capitalism, the book covers a great deal of ground — not only economic enterprise but religion, ideas of masculinity and gender, and national and Southern politics. Baptist breaks new ground in his emphasis on the centrality of the interstate trade in slaves to the regional and national economies and his treatment of the role of extreme violence in the workings of the slave system.
How do we "Leap" forward in the conversation about race
and wealth and have created the climate for significantly different outcomes by February 29, 2020?
