Life and Labor in the Old South

Good, Text has marking, Solid, Cover has wear, Good copy overall. Simultaneously the work is rife with elitism, racism, and reliance on sources that privilege white perspectives. It's an overview of the operation of plantations on a day to day basis, how some owners prospered with agricultural skills and how others failed, how some could manage their slaves and others could not. Such contradictions between its content and viewpoint have earned this work its place at the forefront of texts in the historiography of the antebellum South and African American slavery. He concluded that plantation slavery produced great wealth, but was a dead end, economically, that left the South bypassed by the industrial revolution underway in the North. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. The Southern Classics edition includes a new introduction by John David Smith that frames the volume within Progressive Era scholarship, chronicles its critical reception among blacks and whites, and highlights its influence on contemporary debates about southern identity and slavery.

Simultaneously the work is rife with elitism, racism, and reliance on sources that privilege white perspectives.

Connecting readers with great books since 1972. By turning away from the political debates about slavery that divided North and South, Phillips made the economics and social structure of slavery the main theme in 20th century scholarship.
