This book is primarily a scrutiny of Time on the Cross: The Economics of American Negro Slavery, which was published in 1974. Robert Fogel won the 1993 Economic Nobel Prize, largely as a result of Time on the Cross (which he co-authored with Stanley Engerman). E: they claim that African American slaves were fed and cared for better than either free White northern laborers, or free farmers anywhere in the USA of the epoch. Time on the Cross seems to have sharply divided academia; in the field of economics, my experience is that it is essentially Holy Writ, and Fogel is regarded as infallible.

Paul A. David, Reckoning with Slavery: A Critical Study in the Quantitative History of American Negro Slavery (New York: Oxford University Press, 1976).

Reckoning with Slavery: Critical Essays in the Quantitative History of American Negro Slavery. by Paul A. David and Herbert G. Gutman and Richard Sutch and Peter Temin and Gavin Wright, with an introduction by Kenneth M. Stampp. Fogel and Engerman contend that slavery in the United States was far more successful economically and far less vicious in its impact on the personality and culture of blacks than most historians have thought. Their view contrasts sharply with the interpretations formulated by such conventional historians as Kenneth Stampp, Stanley Elkins, and Eugene Genovese.

Peter Passell, for example, said, If a more important book about American history has been published in the last decade, I don’t know about it (1974, p. 4). Even after the first barrage of criticism appeared, Gary Walton ventured to say that Time on the Cross was destined to become a classic (1975, p. 333). That volume, subtitled The Economics of American Negro Slavery, was described on the jacket cover as a sweeping reexamination of the economic foundations of American Negro slavery. The traditional interpretation of the economics of slavery is obviously long and complex, as was brought out by Stampp in his critique of the book.

Reckoning with Slavery : Critical Essays in the Quantitative History of American Negro Slavery.

In Reckoning with Slavery, six critics mount an impressive many-sided attack against the book's methods and theses. As a statistical analysis, they say, it is crude and outrageously fudged. Imprecise generalizations are drawn from the slenderest of case studies, and even those studies are often distorted. Sheer arithmetic mistakes are common, and the bias of the mistakes is prevailingly upward, toward proving the benignity of the slave economy.
