Download Without Consent or Contract by Robert William Fogel PDF

By Robert William Fogel

Эта книга подытоживает исследования выдающегося американского историка и экономиста, лауреата Нобелевской премии 1993 года, одного из основателей клиометрики Роберта Фогеля по проблеме истории рабства в Новом Свете, в особенности на Юге США.
Аргументированно ставя под сомнение концепции своих предшественников, Фогель доказывает, что рабовладельческое плантационное хозяйство было высокоэффективно и жизнеспособно, обеспечивая как огромные прибыли для владельцев, так и относительно высокий жизненный уровень для большинства рабов, а также стабильный экономический рост для южных штатов. Впрочем, вывод из этого он делает весьма неожиданный: именно в силу перспективности рабовладения Гражданская война в США была совершенно оправдана, поскольку иначе освобождения негров просто не произошло бы. Монография охватывает также историю аболиционистского движения, рассматривая факторы его успехов, неудач и конечной победы (которая, по мнению Фогеля, вовсе не была предопределена заранее, и во многом стала результатом кратковременного совпадения интересов разных социальных групп).
