Interesting book, Interesting concept. The book covers the "complicity" of the Northern states in slavery and the slave trade. Its funny to read history and even today, if you are from the North you have extra credit because the South has a black cloud (no pun intended) hanging over their heads. The truth is the North benefited from slavery at every step of the way.
The book covers the financial benefits to the North from the moment of the trade and bringing in the slaves as well as the output from the crop and finally financially in the banking industries of the north.
