Égarés est un recueil de quatorze nouvelles structuré en trois parties qui marquent les étapes de l’errance : le départ, la route et l’arrivée. Avec force détails historiques, l’auteur de Room nous entraîne du Massachussetts puritain au New Jersey révolutionnaire, en passant par la Louisiane belliqueuse, jusqu’aux bas-fonds de Toronto. Par-delà les époques – les nouvelles courent du XVIIe au XXe siècle –, elle dresse le portrait de personnages fascinants et envoûtants : immigrés à la recherche d’une vie meilleure, voleurs de grands chemins, chercheurs d’or, esclaves en quête de liberté, gardiens de zoo, cow-girls, et mères célibataires obligées d’abandonner leur progéniture. Ces histoires extraordinairement vraies acquièrent sous la plume d’Emma Donoghue une dimension universelle, de vie et d’humanité. On croise ainsi l’éléphant Jumbo obligé de s’engager dans un cirque, le bien célèbre Morissey, bandit devenu agent double sur le point d’arrêter les plus grands faussaires de l’histoire, ou une fausse veuve éplorée qui réussit à faire croire que son mari est mort pour mieux s’enfuir avec son argent. Emma Donoghue montre la preuve de son talent d’écrivain : en évoquant la fuite de l’homme en quête d’une autre existence, et en livrant le portrait de générations obligées à l’exil, elle montre à quel point le voyage est le lieu de la découverte de soi.
Research by economists and economic historians has greatly expanded our knowledge of labor markets and real wages in the United States since the Civil War, but the period from 1820 to 1860 has been far less studied. Robert Margo fills this gap by collecting and analyzing the payroll records of civilians hired by the United States Army and the 1850 and 1860 manuscript federal Censuses of Social Statistics. New wage series are constructed for three occupational groups—common laborers, artisans, and white-collar workers—in each of the four major census regions—Northeast, Midwest, South Atlantic, and South Central—over the period 1820 to 1860, and also for California between 1847 and 1860. Margo uses these data, along with previously collected evidence on prices, to explore a variety of issues central to antebellum economic development. This volume makes a significant contribution to economic history by presenting a vast amount of previously unexamined data to advance the understanding of the history of wages and labor markets in the antebellum economy.
