Summary
William Taylor's Cavalier and Yankee was one of the most famous works of American history written in the 1960s. The book is an intellectual history of the South before the Civil War, the perception of it in the North, and the effect it had upon the nation in the years from 1800 to 1860. Firstpublished in 1961 and out of print for several years, Taylor's classic study remains essential to the study of the pre-Civil War South
