In what ways was American slavery an eminently modern system? How is American capitalism a direct descendant of American slavery? Please keep your paper to 1500 words. Be sure to use evidence from the book, ?The Half has Never Been Told? by Edward Baptist, to support your arguments in the paper. You may also use evidence from the other assigned readings (Eric Foner’s ?Give Me Liberty! (Vol. 1, 4th Edition)? or Elizabeth Cobbs’ ?Major Problems in American History?, Volume 1, 4th Edition) to support your arguments, but your answer should focus almost exclusively on evidence from The Half Has Never Been Told.
