The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-bellum South
Knopf, 1956 - 435 頁
"Prior to the Civil War southern slavery was America's most profound and vexatious social problem. More than any other problem, slavery nagged at the public conscience; offering no easy solution, it demanded statesmanship of uncommon vision, wisdom, and boldness. This institution deserves close study if only because its impact upon the whole country was so disastrous"--Preface.
