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.
This book is critical to understanding why the Southern Gentry despised the North for "exploiting" the South and "stealing" the Souths' financial resources when in fact the increasingly inefficient and unproductive system of slave labor doomed the South to ever increasing reliance on Northern resources to maintain their facade of prosperity.
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
This book is an insight today into much of the Souths' ongoing struggle to join the rest of the United States in economic prosperity
