Trouble of the World: Slavery and Empire in the Age of Capital

English | ISBN: 1469660458 | 2021 | 352 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

In this innovative new study, Zach Sell returns to the explosive era of capitalist crisis, upheaval, and warfare betweenemancipation in the British Empire and Black emancipation in the UnitedStates. In this age of global capital, U.S. slavery exploded to avastness hitherto unseen, propelled forward by the outrush ofslavery-produced commodities to Britain, continental Europe, and beyond. As slavery-produced commodities poured out of the United States, U.S.slaveholders transformed their profits into slavery expansion. Rangingfrom colonial India to Australia and Belize, Sell's examination furtherreveals how U.S. slavery provided not only the raw material forBritain's explosive manufacturing growth but also inspired newhallucinatory imperial visions of colonial domination that took root on a global scale. What emerges is a tale of a system too powerful and tooprofitable to end, even after emancipation; it is the story of howslavery's influence survived emancipation, infusing empire andcapitalism to this day.
