520    "For more than 130 years, from the early nineteenth 
       century until the mid-twentieth, cotton was the leading 
       export crop of the United States. And the connection 
       between cotton and the African-American experience became 
       central to the history of the republic. America's most 
       serious social tragedy, slavery and its legacy, spread 
       only where cotton could be grown. Both before and after 
       the Civil War, and well into the twentieth century, blacks
       were relegated to work the cotton fields. Their social and
       economic situation was aggravated by a pervasive racial 
       animosity and fear of a black migratory invasion that 
       caused white Northerners to contain blacks in the South. 
       Gene Dattel's pioneering study explores the historical 
       roots of these central social issues. In telling detail, 
       Mr. Dattel shows why the vastly underappreciated story of 
       cotton is a key to understanding America's rise to 
       economic power. When cotton production exploded to satiate
       the nineteenth-century textile industry's enormous 
       appetite, it became the first truly complex global 
       business and a driving force in U.S. territorial expansion
       and sectional economic integration. It propelled New York 
       City to commercial preeminence and fostered independent 
       trade between Europe and the United States, providing 
       export capital for the new nation to gain its financial 
       "sea legs." And without slave-produced cotton, the South 
       could never have initiated the Civil War, America's 
       bloodiest conflict. Cotton continued to exert a powerful 
       influence on both the American economy and race relations 
       in the years after the Civil War. Mr. Dattel's skillful 
       historical analysis identifies the commercial forces that 
       cotton unleashed and the pervasive nature of racial 
       antipathy it produced. This is a story that has never been
       told in quite the same way before, related here with the 
       authority of a historian with a profound knowledge of 
       international finance."--Publisher's description.
