Examines the legal and economic strategies adopted by southern landowners to cultivate and profit from their land when the abolition of chattel slavery deprived them of their primary form of wealth and credit. Woodman (history, Purdue U.) explores the evolution of these strategies and how they affected the landowners, former slaves, merchants, and lenders. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
