520 1  "This comprehensive ready-reference encyclopedia of the 
       history, people, events, places, movements, and issues of 
       the Antebellum South is ideal for student use. Nearly 300 
       entries, selected for curriculum relevance with the 
       assistance of historians and secondary school library 
       media specialists, are organized alphabetically and 
       thoroughly cross-referenced. The entries cover all aspects
       of political, economic, military, social, and cultural 
       history of what was an exceedingly complex period fraught 
       with contradictions. Slave life and conditions, plantation
       society, political and reform movements, revolts, 
       industrialization, profiles with statistics of each 
       Southern state, and biographical profiles of 90 key 
       personalities of the period contribute to the 
       comprehensive coverage of the encyclopedia. Each entry 
       concludes with a bibliography of further reading suitable 
       for students. A chronology of events and more than 45 
       illustrations from the period complement the text."--BOOK
