From Our Editors

In the years between 1846 and 1861, foundations were laid for new forms of political organization in the United States. Unfortunately, these foundations were not strong enough to prevent civil war. Daniel Elazar, one of the world's leading authorities on constitutional issues, goes beyond the usual discussion of the southern slave economy and the northern disapproval of the slave trade, to get to the root of the problem. He describes a fast-changing culture underpinning explosive political differences and examines the specific social, political, and economic changes that were occurring at the time - changes that tore communities and families apart, drove northern and southern states into conflict and eventually led the nation into a bloody civil war.
