Book cover
Sugar, Slavery, Christianity and the Making of Race
Mark E. Boren, Associate Professor, University of North Carolina, Wilmington
Book review:
"This compelling (indeed, page-turning) study convincingly argues that the technologies, practices and ideologies developed forthe slave trade of the 17th and 18th centuries continue to define American and European culture today.This book critiques the pervasive and insidious effects of slavery, particularly the technologies that sprang up to ensure efficiency, compliance and productivity. The sugar plantation provided a testing ground for labor practices which would drive the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century and continue to be used today.Borens range of reference is sweeping, his prose crisp and energetic, his tone frank as well as compassionate, his choice of illustrationsboth pictorial and descriptivepertinent and powerful."
