Description

What, exactly, is capitalism? When did it come about? And how does it differ from other economic systems? Despite centuries of discussion surrounding capitalism, its merits and its shortcomings, defining the term ‘capitalism’ itself has been an elusive affair.

In his new book, The Untold History of Capitalism: Primitive Accumulation and the Anti-Slavery Revolution, historian Enrique S. Rivera tackles these questions and more. The study investigates an obscure, yet highly influential, anti-slavery insurrection in Venezuela at the close of the eighteenth century. “Dazzling,” “audacious,” and “innovative,” The Untold History of Capitalism interprets anti-slavery revolutions within the complex history of capitalism–examining their links to the conquest of the Americas, the slave trade in Africa, as well as early industry and financial speculation in Europe. Rivera’s study uncovers fresh details about the nature of capitalism, its history, and its relationship to the most radical ideas of equality that animated struggles against slavery and colonialism.
