A must read for anyone that wants to understand the economic and social implications of the Southern slave aristocracy.
A well researched and written review of the slave aristocracy that suppressed and exploited both black slaves and non-slave holding whites alike.

H. R. Helper explains the slave states downward spiral toward economic collapse that will ultimately drive 11 of the states to secede from the Union and start the Civil War
