Love the information this book provides. It allows you to see the parallels between slavery, peonage and today's prison industrial complex.

This is a pretty shocking book. Very well researched, good for academic use, it details the history, mostly since the Civl War up until the 1970s, of peonage. I hadn't heard the term before except as an insult, and had no idea of its long abusive history in the South. Its no surprise why blacks have so much animosity toward whites, especially in the South. This book takes up the "bloody shirt" and keeps on going. Related books you might be interested in if you are going to research the South soon after the Civl War are Du Bose Heyward's "Mamba's Daughters," Alex Garland's "Tesseract" for peonages appearance in the Philippines, Thomas Wallace Know's "Camp-fire and Cotton-Field: Southern Adventure in Time of War" free on gutenberg, Scott Reynolds Nelson's "Steel Drivin' Man: John Henry: the Untold Story of an American Legend" and for that bloody shirt, Stephen Budiansky's "The Bloody Shirt: Terror After the Civil War." In an attempt to find a "five star review" for the South, I'm reading William Alexander Percy's "Lanterns on the Levee" to see if I can find some beauty in relation to the races therein. Also, leading up to the War, I recommend Steven Channing's "Crisis of Fear" and W. J. Cash's "The Mind of the South." Those two are anything but positive about the South, but honestly, I do have some very good feelings for Florida and South Carolina. So maybe things have finally changed. The Sea Islands are lovely. Oh, yes, for those a terrific book is Theodore Rosengarten's "Tombee." Also, a great read about South Carolina in regards to slavery is Edward Ball's "Slaves in the Family." So many good books, so little time.
