Acerca de


New Orleans, the nineteenth-century South's only true metropolis, originally derived its prosperity as the chief export point for slave-produced commodities, most notably cotton. This book focuses on the city's merchants and how their conservative investment mentalities contributed to New Orleans' unusually rapid economic downfall during and after the Civil War.


'This splendid book offers a meticulous historical study of merchant capitalism in ... New Orleans, a unique port city in the South ... This wonderful study contributes to both southern history and business history and should be required reading in undergraduate and graduate courses.' Elena V. Shabliy, Southern Historian

'Prodigiously researched and elegantly argued, The Merchants' Capital deserves a wide readership.' Richard Follett, The Journal of Southern History
