One important tradition in political science conceives of the Civil
War in the United States serving as the functional equivalent of
the English and French Revolutions, bringing with it the victory of
liberal democratic industrialism over aristocratic agriculturalism.
From this perspective, the Civil War is notable for its impact on
the American state. Surprisingly however, little attention has been
paid to the distinguishing features of this historic rupture in
American politics. Through primary source research and the
re-analysis of the rich historical literature about the antebellum
era and the causes of the Civil War, Lawrence A. Anderson explores
the relationship between federalism and the movement for secession
in the United States during the pre-civil war era. Focusing
primarily on South Carolina, Anderson carefully revisits theory on
institutional analysis of political development to expose what
caused secession in the United States.
