The second great emancipation : the mechanical cotton picker, Black migration, and how they shaped the modern South
"Donald Holley marshals statistical and narrative evidence to show that mechanization occurred in the Delta region of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi only after the region's oversupply of small farmers was reduced. He thereby corrects a long-standing belief that mechanization "pushed" labor off the land."
