Cotton & Race in the Making of Massachusetts & America

Gene Dattel, author of Cotton and Race in the Making of America, brings the relationship of cotton and race out of the regional shadows into the forefront of American history.

Dattel casts light upon today’s economic and racial issues and financial policies and explains why the antebellum North provides the key to the tragedy of African American history from Reconstruction to the present.
