The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of American Capitalism
Historian Edward E. Baptist reveals in The Half Has Never Been Told, the expansion of slavery in the first eight decades after American independence drove the evolution and modernization of the United States. In the span of a single lifetime, the South grew from a narrow coastal strip of worn-out tobacco plantations to a continental cotton empire, and the United States grew into a modern, industrial, and capitalist economy. Until the Civil War, Baptist explains, the most important American economic innovations were ways to make slavery ever more profitable. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from enslaved African Americans. Thus the United States seized control of the world market for cotton, the key raw material of the Industrial Revolution, and became a wealthy nation with global influence.
Told through intimate slave narratives, plantation records, newspapers, and the words of politicians, entrepreneurs, and escaped slaves, The Half Has Never Been Told offers a radical new interpretation of American history. It forces readers to reckon with the violence at the root of American supremacy, but also with the survival and resistance that brought about slavery’s end—and created a culture that sustains America’s deepest dreams of freedom.
Edward E. Baptist is an Associate Professor in the Department of History and House Professor and Dean at the Carl Becker House at Cornell University.

In this episode of The Red Light Sports Ramble, presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec will preview the Green Bay Packers (10-4) vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-12). On paper, the Packers should roll in this game, right? Well, this is the NFL, which means that you have to go out an execute every Sunday. The Buccaneers are tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, and the Tennessee Titans for the worst record, in the NFL. Should the Buccaneers pull off the upset, they will not be in the running for the overall number one pick, in the 2015 Draft. Don't think that the players are going to lay down and take a beating. The Buccaneers will take the field and try to slow down the Packers offense. Offensively, the Buccaneers have an up and coming rookie receiver, Mike Evans. They might be able to find some success against the Packers defense.
The Green Bay Packers need to win, to set up the showdown at Lambeau Field, with the Detroit Lions. However, before looking to week 17, and a Division title showdown, they need to take care of business. The Packers can not expect to fly to Tampa Bay and leave with a win, without executing and fixing some issues. What are the keys to the Packers offense this week? Do you think that they need to get back to a balanced attack? They will have a chance against a Buccaneers defense that ranks 25th, in both, points and yards allowed. There should be opportunities but the Packers need to execute. Listen in or call the show.
