Summary
This is the first work to explore the evolution of clock-based time consciousness in the American South. Challenging traditional assumptions about the plantation economy's reliance on a promodern, nature-based conception of time, Mark M. Smith shows how and why southerners - particularly masters and their slaves - came to view the clock as a legitimate arbiter of time
