Empire of Cotton

My review of Sven Beckert’s economic history Empire of Cotton is now up at Reason. I’m more critical than most reviewers have been, but I think it’s an impressive and important book. I expect to put up a BHL post later this week expanding on a few points that there wasn’t room to treat fully in the review, and to respond to some of the questions I’ve gotten about it (including from co-bloggers).
