Though sugarcane survived, production did not match prewar levels for twenty-five years. Rolands approach is both illustrative of an earlier era and remarkably seminal to current emancipation studies. He displays sympathy for plantation owners losses, but he considers as well the sufferings of women, slaves, and freedmen, yielding a rich study of the social, cultural, economic, and agricultural facets of Louisianas sugar plantations during the Civil War.
