Politics and the Crisis of 1860, Graebner, Norman A. (Editor)
1 Graebner, Norman A. (Editor) Politics and the Crisis of 1860
Urbana University of Illinois Press 1961 First Hard Cover Good No Jacket Ex-Library Octavo 
156 pp. Light general and edgewear to boards. Library sticker residue to front cover. Library stamps to edges of text block. Internally, library impedimenta restricted to endpapers and title page. Text is clean, bright, unmarked. Book is solidly bound. "These five essays [by Graebner, Don E. Fehrenbacher, Robert W. Johannsen, William E. Baringer, and Avery Craven], commemorating the centennial of the first Lincoln election, were presented originally at the fourth annual Civil War Conference at Gettysburg College in November 1960. Each of these essays accepts the verdict that by the campaign of 1860 some form of crisis was inevitable. Nowhere do they insist that all choices had been eliminated except those which the North and South followed. Concerned broadly with the issues and events of the campaign, these essays dwell emphatically on the importance of slavery to the sectional conflict and to its impact on American politics."
