Race in Pre-Civil War America.
Ignatiev, Noel
Social Education, v62 n6 p340-44 Oct 1998
Observes that most white people did not profit from the slave system, yet a massive social force was created to defend it. Argues that this was made possible by linking slavery with theories of racial supremacy. Juxtaposes anti-black racial attitudes with racist views of Irish immigrants prior to the Civil War. (DSK)
