"This book examines the political history of South Carolina from 1828 to 1860, or from nullification to secession," Manisha Sinha explains in the introduction to this book. Sinha analyzes four notable political events during that period, as each is "indicative of Carolinian planter politicians' leading role in the formulation of the ideological and political discourse of slavery that precipitated secession." In the end, South Carolina was "exceptional" but influential in fomenting the secession of the Deep South. Includes extensive endnotes.
