Format: Hardcover
The POLITICS OF DISSOLUTION is a collection of late antebellum US Senate speeches which exemplify the official statements of the public men from the South, North, and West as they struggled with the questions of national identity and the right of self-government. Partisan politics, slavery, secession, empire-building, religion, culture, and fiscal policy are among the issues debated as Americans approached the brink of national catastrophe.
