Studying the changing strategies used by the nineteenth-century
southern leaders to justify their direction of the South's economy
and politics, Shore shows how leaders before, during, and after the
Civil War attempted to set standards of success in southern society
and to clarify the relations between those standards and national
prosperity. Shore offers a new perspective on southern leaders'
worldview and helps clarify the enduring question of what is new
about the "new South."
