We talk with Edward Baptist about The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism. From intimate slave narratives & other sources, the book shows how the expansion of slavery drove the evolution & modernization of the US, making the South a cotton empire, and the US a global capitalist power. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in production from enslaved African Americans to give the US control of the world cotton market.
