An Agrarian Republic: Farming, Antislavery Politics, and Nature Parks in the Civil War Era
by Adam Wesley Dean

"Adam Dean artfully and convincingly reveals the agrarian roots of not only the Republican Party, but all the major conflicts of the Civil War era. Tracing the party's political ideology to a firm belief that progress, prosperity, and civilization arose from the proper management of the nation’s soil, Dean demonstrates that debates over slavery, territorial expansion, and even nature preservation rested on notions of agricultural improvement."
--Lisa Brady, Boise State University
