In a new book I show how broad political and economic changes upend the status quo for the powerful and the powerless alike. The once-powerful realize that the benefits they had once enjoyed are no longer of much value. As the recent slogan puts it best: when you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression. Globalization has brought massive changes in huge industries and in humble homes—how slaveholders respond to these changes and how we ourselves respond will shape social, economic and political relations for the long twenty-first century.
