4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By D. Thompson on March 18, 2005
I am a huge fan of Southern history and Stowe's book is by far the best I have read on the subject. He offers an interdisciplinary view of antebellum courtship incorporating psychological, anthropological, and economic perspectives.

If you have ever wanted to know more about the origins of our current institutions of marriage and dating behavior, this is an excellent resource. You will finish Stowe's book with a better understanding of the role courtship continues to play in the developement of separate spheres for men and women.
