Terms of labor : slavery, serfdom, and free labor by Stanley L Engerman( )

15 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 2,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For long periods, much of the world's labor could be considered under the coercive control of systems of slavery or of serfdom, with relatively few workers laboring under terms of freedom, however defined. Slavery and serfdom were systems that controlled not only the terms of labor, but also the more general issues of political freedom. The nine chapters in this volume deal with the general issues of the causes and consequences of the rise of so-called free labor in Europe, the United States, and the Caribbean over the past four to five centuries, and point to the many complications and paradoxical aspects of this change."--Jacket

The Cambridge Economic History of the United States( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 1,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past several decades there has been a significant increase in our knowledge of the economic history of the United States. This has come about in part because of the development in economic history, most particularly with the emergence of the statistical and analytical contributions of the new economic history, and in part because of related developments in social, labor, and political history that have important implications for the understanding of economic change. The Cambridge Economic History of the United States has been designed to take full account of new knowledge in the subject, while at the same time offering a comprehensive survey of the history of economic activity and economic change in the United States, and in those regions whose economies have at certain times been closely allied to that of the United States: Canada and the Caribbean. - Publisher

Land rights, ethno-nationality, and sovereignty in history by Stanley L Engerman( )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The complex relationships between ethno-nationality, rights to land, and territorial sovereignty have long fed disputes over territorial control and landed rights between different nations, different ethnicities, and different religions. These disputes raise a number of interesting issues related to the nature of land regimes and to their economic and political implications." "The studies drawn together in this volume explore these and related issues for a broad variety of countries and times, and illuminate the diverse causes of ethno-national land disputes, and the different forms of adjustment and accommodation to the power differences between the contesting groups. This is done within a generalized framework outlined by the editors in their analytical overview, which offers contours for comparative examinations of such disputes, past and present." "Providing conceptual and factual analyses of a comparative nature and a wealth of empirical material (both historical and contemporary), this book will appeal to economic historians, economists, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and all scholars interested in issues concerning ethno-nationality and land rights in historical perspective."--BOOK JACKET

The Cambridge world history of slavery by David Eltis( Book )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most societies in the past have had slaves, and almost all peoples have at some time in their pasts been both slaves as well as owners of slaves. Recent decades have seen a significant increase in our understanding of the historical role played by slavery and wide interest across a range of academic disciplines in the evolution of the institution. Exciting and innovative research methodologies have been developed, and numerous fruitful debates generated. Further, the study of slavery has come to provide strong connections between academic research and the wider public interest at a time when such links have in general been weak. The Cambridge World History of Slavery responds to these trends by providing for the first time, in four volumes, a comprehensive global history of this widespread phenomenon from the ancient world to the present day. Volume I surveys the history of slavery in the ancient Mediterranean world. Although chapters are devoted to the ancient Near East and the Jews, its principal concern is with the societies of ancient Greece and Rome. These are often considered as the first examples in world history of genuine slave societies because of the widespread prevalence of chattel slavery, which is argued to have been a cultural manifestation of the ubiquitous violence in societies typified by incessant warfare"--Provided by publisher

Economic development in the Americas since 1500 : endowments and institutions by Stanley L Engerman( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together a number of previously published articles by Stanley L. Engerman and Kenneth L. Sokoloff. Its essays deal with differences in the rates of economic growth in Latin American and mainland North America, specifically the United States and Canada. It demonstrates how relative differences in growth over time are related to differences in the institutions that developed in different economies. This variation is driven by differences in major institutions - suffrage, education, tax policy, land and immigration policy, and banking and financial organizations. These factors, in turn, are all related to differences in endowments, climate, and natural resources. Providing a comprehensive treatment of its topic, the essays have been revised to reflect new developments and research"--
