Title

Eugene Genovese, The World the Slaveholders Made: Two Essays in Interpretation (1988)

Description

Eugene Genovese presents the idea that slave owners are less likely to harm a slave if they have owned them from early on in the slave's life. Because of the amount of time invested by a slave owner in a particular slave, the owner may gain a sense of attachment to the slave and would be less likely to harm them when they are older.
