Slavery in the cities : the South, 1820-1860 by Richard C Wade( Book )

51 editions published between 1954 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a classic work on how slaves adapted to urban life and found some bit of solace from the pecular institution by working in cities. Richard Wade explains how slaves worked as carpenters, metal workers, painters, and numerous other jobs to earn income for their masters and themselves. The city changed the character of slavery by giving slaves some choices and flexibility in mixing with the urban environment
The urban frontier; the rise of western cities, 1790-1830 by Richard C Wade( Book )

31 editions published between 1959 and 1996 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When The Urban Frontier was first published it roused attention because it held that settlers made a concerted effort to bring established institutions and ways to their new country. This differed markedly from the then-dominant Turnerian hypothesis that a culture's identity and behavior was determined by its history and experience in a particular social and physical environment. The Urban Frontier is still considered one of the most important books in urban history. This printing of the now-classic Wade volume features a new introduction by Zane L. Miller
