George C. Rable, Confederate Republic (1994)

Title

George C. Rable, Confederate Republic (1994)

Description

George Rable's book, Confederate Republic: A Revolution Against Politics, takes the Confederate political culture and assesses it in its "own right" instead of a Southern problematic characteristic. Rable takes an in-depth look at the underlying problems that arose before the Civil War. He examines the Confederacy from secession through the war. Throughout the book Rable discusses political, economic, and military problems and issues that the South faced during the Confederacy. A common theme that Rable analyzes throughout his book is political ideology versus political action. He claims that the people of the South were in favor of a true “republic” in which organized political parties would not exist. In this theory, the Southern states would secede and be able to turn away from a “democratic” government and form a “republic.” One of Rable’s main areas of focus is North Carolina, so this book will give insight to some of the thoughts of Southern politicians leading up to the decision of secession. This book should be able to provide background information and a more political view to assist in the retrieval of newspaper articles and firsthand accounts of how Southerners felt towards secession.
