Without Consent or Contract: The Rise and Fall of American Slavery

Robert William Fogel, Author W. W. Norton & Company $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-393-30753-5
Fogel spells out a moral indictment of slavery that supplements his coolly statistical 1974 Time on the Cross ; findings include a high infant mortality rate due to overworked pregnant women and slave hierarchies established by masters. ``Reworking some of the material in Time on the Cross , this incisive, probing reexamination is bound to provoke controversy,'' said PW.
