Using Danville, Virginia, which was dominated by planter-entrepreneurs and tobacco, as an example, Siegel refutes traditional arguments that the South's retarded development was caused by the Civil War. Comparing Danville and it surrounding county with a similar county in Virginia, a successful wheat and dairy county, he demonstrates that the Danville region's monocultures, products of the South's peculiar climate and soils, were responsible for its economic underdevelopment.

Originally published in 1987.

Book Description:

"Using Danville as a case study, Siegel proposes a startling reinterpretation of the history of southern agriculture before the Civil War. The book is certain to be viewed as a major contribution to the debate over the impact of slavery on southern development."--Eric Foner
