Divided Mastery by Jonathan D. Martin
Book DescriptionThe practice bolstered the system of slavery by facilitating its spread into the western territories, by democratizing access to slave labour, and by promoting both production and speculation with slave capital. But at the same time, slaves used hiring to their advantage, finding in it crucial opportunities to shape their work and family lives, to bring owners and hirers into conflict with each other, and to destabilize the system of bondage. Martin illuminates the importance of the capitalist market as a tool for analyzing slavery and its extended relationships. Through its complex perspective, the book demonstrates that slave hiring is critical to understanding the fundamental nature of American slavery and its social, policital and economic place in the Old South.
