white titles spine; cover illustration shows: 'Solution of the Labor Problem in rbe South' from Harper's Weekly, 1865; "provides an insightful analysis of the effort to transform the South into a free labour society. Building upon existing regional studies, Powell takes his readers into the plantation fields and country stores where blacks and whites fought decisive battles over the meaning of emancipation. The book tells this critical story from the perspective of outsiders who arrived as conquerors confidently imbued with boundless faith in the efficacy of free labour. ... Because Powell tempers his conceptual boldness with theoretical sophistication and logical trenchancy, this book contributes in a most significant way to the swelling interest in the transformation of post-war southern society."; previous owner's name on front endpaper; including appendix; tables; extensive notes; bibliographical essay & index - 253 pages.
