“This monograph devotes itself mainly to the subject of land tenure in Georgia as affected by the quantity and quality of the labor supply.  The struggle of land-owners after the War to maintain the plantation system gave way before economic and psychological difficulties - the very great scarcity of laborers and the negroes’ dislike of working under supervision and control.” - Review in Journal of Political Economy, July, 1914.
