About this product
- DescriptionLike the rest of British North America, the American South was born capitalist. The slave plantation, then, was essentially a form of business enterprise like any other - indeed, one quite modern and sophisticated for its time. There were initially very few significant differences in business culture between the rthern and southern parts of what became the United States Yet the plantation placed its peculiar stamp on the South, and vice versa, and its path of development diverged increasingly from that of the growing manufacturing belt of the North. In their essays collected in The South, the Nation, and the World, David Carlton and Peter Coclanis effectively argue that the chronic ecomic difficulties of the American South cant simply be explained away as resulting from a distinctive premodern business climate, because there was actually very little variation between one region's business climate and ather's during the Antebellum period. Instead, it was the collapse of the slave regime in the 1860s that left the South in dire need of ecomic restructuring, and by Reconstruction the emergent American ecomy had foreclosed options formerly available to southern enterprise. Forced to play catch-up, southerners have had at best mixed success in the continuing struggle to create an ecomic life affording stable growth and broad opportunity to all the region's people - and Carlton and Coclanis offer a fascinating illumination of the twists and turns in that ecomic history.
