Time on the Cross, Vol 1

EPUB EBook by Robert William Fogel

EBook Description

This academic study is a provocative, daring, and creative work that highlights how history can be elastic. Time on the Cross, Vol 1 EPUB EBookFogel won a Nobel Prize for his contribution as one of the chief architects of the “cliometric revolution” in historiography and in this book he applies statistics and economics to reexamine slavery and challenge conventional assumptions and perspectives.He also shows how “so- EPUBcalled observations or accounts” were actually polemics against or for certain positions that might be politically or ideologically loaded.The book concludes that “time on the cross” for blacks did not come to an end with emancipation, rather, slavery was an economic system that exploited racism, not an expression racism.The book is a wholesale debunking machine that stood culturally cherished beliefs about slavery on their head.What more could you ask from a book?(It should be noted though that the book has been harshly criticized.)
