"Masterly... Deeply researched and eminently readable, "Empire of Cotton" gives new insight into the relentless expansion of global capitalism. With graceful prose and a clear and compelling argument, Beckert not only charts the expansion of cotton capitalism... he addresses the conditions of enslaved workers in the fields and wage workers in the factories. An astonishing achievement"
