1 Robin Blackburn - THE MAKING OF NEW WORLD SLAVERY: From the Baroque to the Modern, 1492 - 1800 -

Verso - 1997 - (Hard Cover - W/Dust Jacket) - Used - Very Good - (Plus) - (Hard Cover - Dust Jacket, Very Good, Plus) - 

In this volume, the author traces European doctrines of race and slavery from medieval times to the early modern epoch, and finds that the stigmatization of the ethno-religious Other was given a callous twist by a new culture of consumption, freed from an earlier moral economy. At the time when European powers colonized the New World, the institution of slavery had almost disappeared from Europe itself. Having overcome an institution widely regarded as oppressive and unfortunate, why did they sponsor the construction of racial slave systems in their new colonies? This volume argues that independent commerce, geared to burgeoning consumer markets, was the driving force behind the rise of plantation slavery.
