The Empire of Necessity: Slavery, Freedom and Deception in the New World
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Greg Grandin, author of "The Empire of Necessity: Slavery, Freedom, and Deception in the New World." The book explores an American theme: the paradox of society aspiring to good while acting profoundly immoral.
Greg Grandin is one of our foremost historians, an original scholar and a gifted storyteller. He is the author of Fordlandia: The Rise and Fall of Henry Ford's Forgotten Jungle City.
