American work : four centuries of black and white labor

Jones, Jacqueline, 1948-

New York : W.W. Norton, c1998.

543 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.

This is a social history of almost four centuries of competition, co-operation and exclusion. In a New World built on a foundation of tobacco, rice, timber and peas, human labour was the key to wealth and colonists knew that most labour was naturally not free. Red, white and black men, women and children could all expect hard usage by masters, husbands and fathers. As the wilderness was cultivated and economies stabilized, however, life got better - for some.
