One Kind of Freedom - The Economic Consequences of Emancipation (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Roger L. Ransom, Richard Sutch One Kind of Freedom - The Economic Consequences of Emancipation (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Roger L. Ransom, Richard Sutch
R673 R523 Discovery Miles 5 230 Save R150 (22%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

One Kind of Freedom examines the economic institutions that replaced slavery and the conditions under which ex-slaves were allowed to enter the economic life of the United States following the Civil War. The authors contend that although the kind of freedom permitted to black Americans allowed substantial increases in their economic welfare, it effectively curtailed further black advancement and retarded Southern economic development. The new edition of this economic history classic includes a new introduction by the authors, an extensive bibliography of works in Southern history published since the appearance of the first edition, and revised findings based on newly available data and statistical techniques.

Settler Economies in World History (Hardcover): Christopher Lloyd, Jacob Metzer, Richard Sutch Settler Economies in World History (Hardcover)
Christopher Lloyd, Jacob Metzer, Richard Sutch; Edited by National Bureau of Economic Research

Settler colonialism was a major aspect of the imperial age that began in the sixteenth century and has encompassed the whole world unto the present. Modern settler societies have together constituted one of the major routes to economic development from their foundation in resource abundance and labour scarcity. This book is a major and wide-ranging comparative historical enquiry into the experiences of the settler world. The roles of indigenous dispossesion, large-scale immigrant labour, land abundance, trade, capital, and the settler institutions, are central to this economic formation and its history. The chapters examine those economies that emerged as genuine colonial hybrids out of their differing neo-European backgrounds, with distinctive post-independence structures and an institutional persistence into the present as independent states. Contributors include Stanley Engerman, Susan Carter, Henry Willebald, Luis Bertola, Claude L tzelschwab, Frank Tough, Kathleen Dimmer, Tony Ward, Drew Keeling, Carl Mosk, David Meredith, Martin Shanahan, John K Wilson, Bernard Attard, Grietjie Verhoef, Tim Rooth, Francine McKenzie, Jorge Alvarez, Jim McAloon, as well as the editors.

"Developing a dialogue between historians and economists is a crucially important task if we are to improve our understanding of the past. Economists have the tools to be able to provide in-depth analysis, the historians have the meat and substance which is necessary, and a blending of the two is terribly important. "Economics and the Historian is a valuable resource for this interchange."--Nobel Laureate Douglass C. North, author of "Institutions, Institutional Change, and Economic Performance

"This is a superlative collection of essays for historians who would like to learn about economic history but lack much formal training in mathematics and economic theory. The essays present fundamental concepts of economic analysis in a clear and concise manner, and they show how these concepts can be applied to a variety of historical problems."--Ted W. Margadant, author of "Urban Rivalries in the French Revolution

"This book is must reading for historians who want to know what there is in economics that might be useful for their fields."--Nobel Laureate Robert W. Fogel, author of "Time on the Cross

"Introduces historians and history students to the concepts, models, and logic of economic theory and shows how economic analysis can be applied to solving historical puzzles and problems. Each of the essays illuminates a different subfield of economics with numerous examples drawn from a quarter century of cliometrics. This book will make basic tools of economic historical analysis accessible and at times even entertaining to students (and colleagues) who have little or no background in economics. And it is guaranteed to enliven any course or seminar, as it did mine."--John H. Coatsworth,author of "Central America and the United States
