Eugene Genovese

Eugene Dominic Genovese (May 19, 1930 – September 26, 2012) was an American historian of the American South and American slavery. He was noted for bringing a Marxist perspective to the study of power, class and relations between planters and slaves in the South. His book ''Roll, Jordan, Roll: The World the Slaves Made'' won the Bancroft Prize. He later abandoned the left and Marxism and embraced traditionalist conservatism.

He wrote during the Cold War and his political beliefs, at the time, were considered highly controversial. Provided by Wikipedia
