The Half Has Never Been Told
The Half Has Never Been Told Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism By Baptist, Edward E. Book - 2016

The analysis of how the understanding of "American values" diverged between the North and the Deep South, a divergence that was at the root of the Civil War, is important. I agree that the writing style is not infrequently annoying. The specific accounts about experiences of enslaved people are, I think, an important element to show exactly what a horrific institution cotton-industry slavery was.
