Robert William Fogel and Stanley L. Engerman, Time on the Cross: The Economics of. .That volume, subtitled The Economics of American Negro Slavery, was described on the jacket cover as a sweeping reexamination of the economic foundations of American Negro slavery.

Robert William Fogel and Stanley L. Engerman, Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1974. It takes a licking, but keeps on ticking. The text continued in that bold and provocative style. As indicated above, it got the attention it sought.

Originally published: Boston, Mass. Little, Brown, c1974. Includes bibliographical references (p. -290) and index. The economics of American Negro slavery. Slavery and the Cliometric Revolution - The international context of U. S. slavery - Occupations and markets - Profits and prospects - The anatomy of exploitation - The origins of the economic indictment of slavery - Paradoxes of forced labor - Implications for our time - Afterword 1989. Evidence and methods-.

Fogel and Engerman seem largely insensitive to the human consequences of slavery. They excuse this, claiming that their study is about the economics of slavery in comparison with free farming. This looks like an evasion: Phillips, who they rightly criticise, tried to describe the whole phenomenon of pre-Civil War slavery and these authors' attack on him and others is not limited to economics. Overall, the authors prove.

Wilson firmly placed the discussion over the peculiar institution of slavery in these United States. Engerman. Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery.

Time on the Cross book. Robert Fogel just died and I realized that I had not included his book, which I avidly read in 1990. In an Afterword added in 1989, the authors assess their findings. Robert William Fogel's interpretation, analysis, and delivery is pretty impressive regardless of personal opinion, judgment and belief with regard to the subject matter. He won the Nobel in economics for this book (and other works). It is his analysis of slavery in the US as an economic institution. It combines economic analysis with historical analysis to shed much light on a hugely controversial topic.
