He covers all aspects of the two labor systems, including their impact on the economy, on racial attitudes, social structures and on regional variations within the colonies. Throughout, overriding themes emerge: the labor market in North America, the significance of racial distinctions, supply and demand factors in transatlantic migration and labor, and resistance to bondage.This is an ideal introduction to an area that is crucial for understanding not just Colonial American society but also the later development of the United States."

The Great Upheaval  America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788-1800, Winik, Jay
4 Winik, Jay The Great Upheaval America and the Birth of the Modern World, 1788-1800
New York HarperCollins 2007 0060083131 / 9780060083137 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Remainder mark bottom page edges; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped; 9.10 X 6.10 X 2.10 inches; 659 pages; "It is an era that redefined history. As the 1790s began, a fragile America teetered on the brink of oblivion, Russia towered as a vast imperial power, and France plunged into revolution. But in contrast to the way conventional histories tell it, none of these remarkable events occurred in isolation. Now, for the first time, in The Great Upheaval, acclaimed historian Jay Winik masterfully illuminates how their fates combined in one extraordinary moment to change the course of civilization.In this sweeping, magisterial drama, Winik brings his vast, meticulous research and narrative genius to the cold, dark battlefields and deadly clashes of ideologies that defined this age. Here is a savage world war, the top-pling of a great dynasty, and an America struggling to survive at home and abroad. Here, too, is the first modern holy war between Islam and a resurgent Christian empire. And here is the richest cast of characters to walk upon the world stage: Washington and Jefferson, Louis XVI and Robespierre, Catherine the Great, Adams, Napoleon, and Selim III. With powerful echoes for understanding the international chaos that confronts the globe today, we see them all fighting desperately for the ideals they believed in, whether man-made democracy or divinely inspired autocracy, whether republicanism or Allah's law."
