    There are still those today who call fogel a racist or (as one other commentator did) an apologist for slavery.

    This is a survey and analysis of previously unresearched data.

    Fogel and engerman attack the thesis that slavery was impeding the economic progress of the south and would ultimately collapse under its own inefficiencies.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Some claim that this means that fogel and engerman support slavery or that somehow this makes slavery palateable; to the contrary, their conclusion lends weight to the idea that only a civil war would be able to end the evil practice, contrary to the hopes of many abolitionists who claimed slavery would fall apart due to its inherent weaknesses.

    Fogel recieved the nobel prize in economics in 1993 (not solely for this work of course) and his most famous book is still the standard for excellence in his field.

    This was a major reason why, in spite of his obvious talent at a young age, fogel only managed to find a job at the young and relatively untested economics department at the university of rochester, and later on at the university of chicago, another department that was considered well out of the mainstream.

    There's no other way to put it.

    It was thus extremely bizarre to see accusations of racism, political bias or even slavery apologism leveled at fogel and his co-author.
