In this brilliant study of the origins of the Civil War, William Freehling tells the story of the Nullification Controversy in South Carlina, describing how from 1816 to 1836 aristocratic planters of the Palmetto State tumbled from a secure and prosperous life to one rife with economic distress, guilt over slavery, and apprehension of slave rebellion.
