Reviews

In 1944 Eric Williams published his classic Capitalism and Slavery which sparked a scholarly conversation that has yet to die down. In many ways, the debates it generated are more vibrant now than ever and promise to be a lasting touchstone for historians well into the future.-- "Black Perspective"
[This] new edition of Capitalism and Slavery, published by the University of North Carolina Press with a foreword by the economist William Darity, reminds us in particular of Williams's independent political and intellectual spirit and how his scholarship upended the historiographical consensus on slavery and abolition.-- "The Nation"
Published in America in 1944, Capitalism and Slavery ignited a long-running academic controversy. A new edition this year -- a small miracle for a work of strict economic history almost eighty years old -- asks us to consider the legacy of a book that virtually invented the modern study of abolitionism.-- "Jacobin"
