Deeply researched and eminently readable, Empire of Cotton by Sven Beckertt gives new insight into the relentless expansion of global capitalism. With graceful prose and a clear and compelling argument, Beckert not only charts the expansion of cotton capitalism . . . he addresses the conditions of enslaved workers in the fields and wage workers in the factories. An astonishing achievement.
It's a big book; we'll read half in Dec and finish in January
