While South Carolina s preemptive strike on Fort Sumter and Lincoln's subsequent call to arms started the Civil War, South Carolina's secession and Lincoln's military actions were simply the last in a chain of events stretching as far back as 1619.

Increasing moral conflicts and political debates over slavery-exacerbated by the inequities inherent between an established agricultural society and a growing industrial one-led to a fierce sectionalism which manifested itself through cultural, economic, political and territorial disputes. This historical study reduces sectionalism to its most fundamental form, examining the underlying source of this antagonistic climate. From protective tariffs to the expansionist agenda, it illustrates the ways in which the foremost issues of the time influenced relations between the North and the South.

    A very thorough book discussing the causes of the Civil War. Like most books tackling this subject, the author does his best at maintaining objectivity and makes it clear that the war was not over any single issue and was much more complicated than saying it was about slavery and leaving it at that. His views on the economics are particularly interesting as are the issues of expansion.
