About the Author

George Fitzhugh, lawyer, planter, newspaperman, sociologist, was born in Virginia in 1806. He married in 1829, had nine children, and lived until the Civil War in his wife's home in Port Royal, Virginia. During this period he practiced law, was employed briefly in the Attorney General's office, wrote for various periodicals and newspapers, and published two books, Sociology for the South, or the Failure of Free Society (1854) and Cannibals All! (1857). After a foray into abolitionist territory in 1856, including a debate in New Haven with Wendell Phillips, he returned to the South more convinced than ever of his position, and up to the War he remained hopeful of converting the North. Fitzhugh died in Texas in 1881. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book has numerous typological errors. What I dont understand is that I was able to locate online the same book as an ebook, and it had none of the errors in the text that this version had. You can do better.

As a prominent figure, Fitzhugh made a very convincing point about Southern society in this book. I find it very helpful for my research.
