Born in Brooklyn, New York, Eugene Genovese was educated at Brooklyn College and Columbia University, where he received his Ph.D. in 1959. He has served as Pitt Professor of American History at Cambridge University and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at the University Center in Georgia. An erudite, unconventional, and often unpredictable Marxist, Genovese has forced historians of the Old South---and especially of slavery---to think in new ways about important questions. Ranging over a multitude of topics, his work is concerned mainly with the relationship between economic factors, social conditions, and culture. Of his best-known work. Roll, Jordan, Roll (1974), David Brion Davis wrote:…    

Book One: God is Not Mocked
Of the Willing and the Obedient
And the Children Brought Up
The Rock and the Church
Of the God of the Living
And Every Man According as His Work Shall Be
The Valley of the Shadow
Of the Sons of Jacob
And the Coat of Many Colors
Whom God Hath Hedged In
