A wide-ranging, powerful, alternative vision of the history of the United States and how the slave-breeding industry shaped it. THE AMERICAN SLAVE COAST tells the horrific story of how the slavery business in the United States made the reproductive labor of "breeding women" essential to the expansion of the nation. The book shows how slaves' children, and their children's children, were human savings accounts that were the basis of money and credit. This was so deeply embedded in the economy of the slave states that it could only be decommissioned by Emancipation, achieved through the bloodiest war in the history of the United States. THE AMERICAN SLAVE COAST presents the slavery business, as well as familiar historical figures and events, in a revealing new light.
