Sample text

Each year brings so many new specialized studies and articles on the varieties of unfree labor in North America that even scholars who pretend to specialize in the field can scarcely keep up. This development is as welcome as it is problematical, for many earlier studies on slavery as a form of labor organization tended to ignore the role that bondpeople played in the creation of southern society and culture. But the historiographical trends since the late 1970s have often tended to obscure the role that politics played in shaping the black community – or that slavery played in shaping the nature of the American Union.

In the minds of white southerners, slavery for blacks guaranteed white independence and provided an avenue for upward social mobility. At the very least, slavery prevented the spread of widespread dependence among whites and prevented the emergence of a white proletariat in the region. Abolition threatened to turn this world upside down, and deluge whites in a flood of free blacks angry from years of exploitation. The restriction of slavery in the territories seemed to suggest that southerners were second-class citizens.

The lingering interest in southern separatism, evidenced by the still avowedly pro-secession platform of the League of the South, and the recent resurgence of Scottish or Celtic identity movements have nonetheless gained only marginal appeal among southern whites. ” In the volume’s final chapter, Heather Richardson surveys the historical literature on the impact of Reconstruction on northern labor. Richardson suggests that the absence of southern political influence in national councils, with its chronic suspicion of accruing federal power, paved the way for more aggressive assertion of the class agenda of northern capitalists.
