Ante-Bellum: Writings of George Fitzhugh and Hinton Rowan Helper on Slavery.
Edited with an introduction by Harvey Wish.
New York, G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1960 (Capricorn Books, CAP 31).
Paperback. 256 pages.

"Three classic works on slavery, edited with an introduction by Harvey Wish. These are three of the most famous books on slavery ever written, works which go to the heart of the savage struggle between the North and the South, which ended with the Civil War. Sociology for the South by George Fitzhugh (1854); Cannibals All! by George Fitzhugh (1857); and The Impending Crisis by Hinton Rowan Helper (1857). The two books by Fitzhugh are powerful defences of slavery on humanitarian grounds. Helper's book is a resounding attack on the institution of slavery, written with scorn and fury, but backed by solid and convincing facts as well, Helper's book caused riots in Congress and any man caught with the book in the South was subject to public whipping for the first offense and hanged for the second."
