Alpert, Jonathan L. "The Origin of Slavery in the United States: The Maryland Precedent." American Journal of Legal History 14 (1970): 189-222.
Annotations / Notes: Maryland was the "first province in English North America to recognize slavery as a matter of law" (189). Therefore, the study of Maryland is useful for historians studying how American slavery was a product of the law. Early legislation recognized the existence of slavery, for while indentured servitude and slavery co-existed, and the terms were used interchangeably, the law still distinguished between the two. "All slaves were servants but not all servants were slaves" (193). However, it wasn't until 1664 when a statue was created which established slavery as hereditary. This statute was the first law in English North American to thus establish this type of slavery, legalizing what had been de facto since 1639. The author concludes that laws reflect the attitudes of a society and the manner in which societal problems are resolved. In the case of Maryland, servant problems could be avoided by replacing indentured servitude with perpetual slavery.

Argersinger, Jo Ann E. Toward a New Deal in Baltimore: People and Government in the Great Depression. Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 1988.
Annotations / Notes: This book is especially relevant as the nation debates the privatization of social security. It considers the impact of the New Deal from the perspective of the city and the state rather than from the top down. Both Democratic Mayor Howard Jackson and Governor Albert C. Ritchie, a state's rights Democrat, were hostile to the centralizing policies of FDR's New Deal. The existing combination of private relief and public assistance which had developed in the 1920s, placing primary emphasis on faith based organizations to provide the basic safety net, was overwhelmed by the massive problems of the depression. It was only by the mid-1930s that this function was reorganized under municipal authority but the continued opposition of the Mayor and the Governor undermined this effort. Even with this bureaucratization of welfare, city workers continued to engage volunteer organizations to provide relief. Other aspects of the New Deal, such as labor unionization, and the problems faced by African Americans and women during the depression, are also considered.
