Fitzhugh's influential treatise was first published in 1857 and argued that slavery was a positive good that benefited both slaves and masters. He believed that wage labor in Northern states was a more insidious form of exploitation because it left workers without the security and protection of the paternalistic slave system. Fitzhugh's arguments were highly controversial in his own time and remain so today.
