Progress Report~

Alas, my friends: I didn’t get much writing on Wayward Son done the past week (though, thankfully, chapter 72 and corrections to 71 are ready to go). I did get more than a few things done, though–specifically, reading for my classes! I managed to finish up/take notes on:

1.    David Brion Davis, The Problem of Slavery in the Age of Revolution, 1770-1823. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1975.
2.    David B. Davis, et. al., “AHR Forum: Crossing Slavery’s Boundaries,” American Historical Review 105 (April 2000): 451-484.
3.    Robin Blackburn, The Making of New World Slavery: From Baroque to the Modern,1492-1800. New York: Verso, 1997.
4.    Christopher Schmidt-Nowara, “National Economy and Atlantic Slavery: Protectionism and Resistance to Abolitionism in Spain and the Antilles, 1854-1874” in The Hispanic American Historical Review, Vol. 78, No. 4 (Nov., 1998), pp. 603-62

5.    David Eltis, Rise of African Slavery in the Americas. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2000.

Not a bad selection of books, eh? This weekend, I wanna finish up:

6.    Eric Williams, Capitalism and Slavery (1944)

7.    J.R. Oldfield. Transatlantic Abolitionism in the Age of Revolution: An International History of Anti-slavery, c.1787-1820. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2013.
8.    William Mulligan, ed. A Global History of Anti-Slavery Politics in the Nineteenth Century. Palgrave Macmillan, 2013.

As you can tell, I gotta be studyin hardcore for mah classes 8) I might tell you how it’s gone/more about the nature of studying for grad school oral exams in history next week. Till then, back to reading~!
