Alternatives to Traditional Western Accounts of Liberalism, Modernity, and Capitalism

Below are several images of works concerning the contributions of slavery to modern capitalism.  These works, unlike Eric Williams’ Capitalism and Slavery, do not approach their subjects through materialist, Marxist, liberal, or any other Whiggish-type strategies.  Instead, these authors provided an integrated approach to the economic, social, and cultural influences of slavery (as an institution) to nineteenth century capitalism.  Although, I have included some works that deal with earlier (eighteenth century) topics, which have played major roles in the rise of capitalism.
