Join us on April 25, 2015, at 1PM for an author event with Dr. Edward Baptist, Penn alumn and professor of history at Cornell University, for a discussion about his new book The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism (2014, Basic Books).
From the publisher: "A sweeping, authoritative history of the expansion of slavery in America, showing how forced migrations radically altered the nation's economic, political, and cultural landscape."
"The real takeaway from this thoughtful, unsettling history: Baptist turns the long-accepted argument that slavery was economically inefficient on its head, and argues that it was an integral part of America's economic rise." -- Daily Beast, Best Nonfiction Books of 2014
"A compelling case for recognizing slavery as fundamental to the rise of the United States." -- Guardian Australia, Best Books of 2014
