[[ASIN:081735526X King Cotton Diplomacy: Foreign Relations of the Confederate States of America]

It is very surprising to me that this work has not been reviewed here,particularly given that we appear to be in another "trade war" over cotton (Wall Street Journal). I will pull my first edition out and provide a more complete review later, but some of the things covered in this book - and verified by pulling original newspaper accounts - are not found in any other history of the South (that I have found) and it's economic interaction with the North, the jealousy of Northern capitalists of the growing industrial strength and ingenuity evident in an area of the country that was quickly gaining the upper hand in Congress, and the hypocrisy of the Northern slave traders who were largely the ones profiting most from slavery AND making it possible. It was largely "Yankee" merchants who were financing or owning the slave trading ships that packed hundreds of humans (mostly, but not exclusively African OR black) into squalid conditions for a long terrifying journey across the Atlantic to "the new world."

This book is not an excuse for the South's actions, and it should not be approached as such. It attempts to view the run-up to the Civil War in economic terms, but does not ignore the moral lessons. As such, it fills an important niche of knowledge - and provides numerous teachable moments -in the history of our nation. If you love history, you will devour this book.
