Genovese's context is rich, his mind acute, his learning extensive The Political Economy of Slavery is one of those . .

When Eugene Genovese, now a senior figure in slavery studies, was a young scholar, the question of whether slavery was "profitable" or "as profitable as free labor" was a vexed one in the academy. These early essays consider the question and the answer he gives is no. This is undoubtedly correct, but the mystery to me has always been why anybody thought there was a controversy.

A close analysis of works such as THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF SLAVERY shows his greatest lacunae: the minimizing of the significance of black struggle and the magnifying of whatever elements of passivity can be found among blacks insofar as they actively participated in the Civil War. Accommodation and the plantation as community are overdone themes.

I first encountered Eugene Genovese's Political Economy of Slavery as a graduate student in history in the late 1970s where the book was essential reading in courses on slavery and the Old South. I think I had to read the book in three separate classes, a testimony of how important scholars regarded it more than a decade after its publication.

If there were a MOOC course about American slavery, this would be one of its basic texts. Should be required reading for the neo-Confederates who claim the Civil War was not fought over slavery.
