Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Generations of American historians have analyzed Southern nationalism as a major causative factor in the coming of the Civil War. Now British historian Grant (U.S. history, Univ. of Newcastle-upon-Tyne) offers an original and controversial interpretation: she postulates that a series of often conflicting ideological forces were at work that made Northern nationalism an equally potent force in the development of the American character during the antebellum period. In this thought-provoking, intellectual historical examination, Grant focuses on what Northerners thought about the South and how their beliefs created a distinct outlook based on opposition to things Southern. Relying heavily on primary sources, she includes attitudes toward the South by molders of public opinion such as politicians, writers, travelers, and educators, analyzing why both positive and negative images of the South existed in the antebellum Northern mind, particularly within the nascent Republican Party. According to Grant, "It became obvious that northerners were increasingly using the South to define, first, a northern ideology and second, an American identity." The South was therefore excluded from the full process of American national identity construction. This truly original and controversial study is recommended for academic libraries and large public Civil War collections.ACharles C. Hay III, Eastern Kentucky Univ. Libs., Richmond
