Review quote

"Hahn's use of primary and secondary sources is extraordinary. He mixes rich quotations with clear writing."--The Journal of American History"Hahn's study is impressively argued and richly documented. Its intensive and skillful use of local sources gives it a substantial and authoritative quality that disarms criticism."--The New York Review of Books"Indispensable reading for all students of southern history and the history of American dissent."--David Brion Davis, Yale University"A landmark book....Hahn has pioneered part of a long-neglected subject of nineteenth-century America."--Journal of Social History"Engagingly written, provocative."--American Historical Reviewshow more
