Through a detailed critical interpretation of the 1860 federal census, Bode and Ginter show that extensive family tenancy, and probably sharecropping, were not the creations of Emancipation and Reconstruction, but instead were widely present before the upheaval of the Civil War.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A very thorough and detailed investigation of the data upon which much historical investigation has been based. The book is a model of how to proceed when data are conceptually ambiguous. It will challenge a variety of existing preconceptions about the nature of the antebellum South and also about the political economy of the postwar transition.--Phillip Wood ""Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science" "


A provocative empirical study and is likely to stir controversy and motivate research for years to come.--Donald F. Schaefer ""Agricultural History" "


This is a careful, sophisticated study of an important issue. The conclusions are sound, judicious, and convincing. This book should lay to rest the debate over the incidence of farm tenancy in the antebellum South and force reconsideration of the uniqueness of the post-bellum agricultural structure.--Donald L. Winters ""Journal of Economic History" "


This is an impressive and valuable work. It shows once again how important local and state studies are for a full understanding of American history. Historians of the South and of nineteenth century American agriculture will have to take this book into account.--Richard Lowe ""Journal of Southern History" "


No student of nineteenth-century southern agriculture can ignore this study. The University of Georgia Press should be commended for advancing our understanding of this important topic by publishing what is principally a methodological study.--Whitman H. Ridgway ""American Historical Review" "
