His basic argument is that what bound the north together against the south is not the hatred of slavery, but the northern conception of what the economic ordering of society should be. The north was for the free laborer to work to the best of his abilities, while the GOP saw the south as arsitrocratic and decadent. A convicning argument and a fast read. You can see how the arguments about morality and economics have carried through surprisingly intact for over years. This was his doctoral thesis expanded into a book. I'm biased though, he's my Professor at Columbia.

Foner's account of the antebellum formation of the Republican Party and its ideology is a model for what truly great history writing should be. This work is a relatively easy read (as history texts go), but without sacrificing any academic value. Of all of the books I've read about antebellum American politics, this is far and away my favorite.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Why have I not read Eric Foner before? 21. August 2013
Von Jeff Neuman Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's 5 stars easy. I'm not an expert in this field at all. Have read about 7 books on Lincoln, but this book gives amazing context beyond trying to figure out the one personality. It helps me understand not just THE out look on the part of early Republicans, but rather the outlooks. He talks about personalities as well as groups and how things change over time. Well researched. I don't know who has followed up on such a book, or if there is a better book out there now on the subject, but I can't imagine that anyone following Foner does not have to stand on his shoulders.

If you are interested in the period, I highly recommend this work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Oldie but Goodie 18. Oktober 2007
Von Zippergirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The roots of the Civil War reach back to the birth of the nation. The Founders agreed to disagree on the issue of slavery in order to form a `more perfect Union.' By the 1860s the nation was at war with itself. Why did the South secede, and why did the North take up arms to prevent its secession? (316) In Free Soil, Free Labor, Free Men: The Ideology of the Republican Party Before the Civil War, the first of Eric Foner's many influential books, he examines the two decades running up to the 1860 presidential election by taking a close look at the ideology of the Republican Party. In a time of rancorous sectional division, during which the Democratic Party was sundered north and south, with each section nominating its own presidential candidate, the Republicans drew anti-slavery Whigs and Democrats together under one banner. The party members shared a resentment of Southern political power, a devotion to the Union, moral revulsion to the peculiar institution, and a commitment to the northern social order and its development and expansion. (310-314)

During the 1850s, respected historians agree, that the government of President Buchanan was under the complete control of the South which threatened the essence of the Republican view of democracy--which was majority rule. (100) "The domination of both the South and the federal government by the Slave Power violated this basic democratic belief." (101) Repeated attempts by the southern Slave Power to establish slavery in the western territories brought the sectional conflict to a crisis. The North and South represented two incompatible social systems, and expansion of the decadent South, as Seward warned, might lead to "entirely a slave-holding nation."

Several critical chapters of Foner's book delineate the radical, conservative and moderate elements within the newly-formed Republican party, and include the northern Democratic-Republicans who were alienated by the slaveocracy which by then controlled their party. The former Democrats found their party no longer a "champion of popular rights." (177) The radicals battle cry was, "Liberty and Union." This small but powerful minority was influential within the party, and brooked no compromise with the South, believing that the Founders intended that slavery would eventually cease to exist in the nation. (139-144) The conservatives wanted to preserve the Union at any cost, and were willing to make concessions to the South in order to do so. It was the moderates, including Lincoln, who "refused to abandon either of their twin goals--free soil and the Union," and drew the line at expansion of slavery into the new states. (219) It was not the moral imperative of the abolitionists which drew together the radicals and conservatives, the Whigs and Democrats, and the former Liberty, Free Soil and Know-Nothings. It was the political anti-slavery, Free Labor ideology which "blended personal and sectional interest with morality so perfectly that it became the most potent political force in the nation." (309)

Foner is the DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University whose interest in the antebellum period started in college in the 1960s. Foner has authored more than a dozen books on American political history and race relations, including his latest Forever Free: The Story of Emancipation and Reconstruction; published in 2005. Free Soil began as his doctoral dissertation under Pulitzer prizewinner, Richard Hofstadter. This scholar's scholar assumes a substantial familiarity with 19th century American history, leaving the reader to fill in the essential details of the various acts, provisos, compromises and constitutions; likewise, biographical material on important players in the antebellum milieu, like Stephen A. Douglas and William H. Seward, is also given short shrift. An introductory essay written on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of Free Soil calls on recent historiography to explore the concept of "free labor" in the 19th century, a time when half of Northern Americans were wage-earners.

Free Soil is now nearly forty years old, yet remains a worthwhile read for anyone with a more than superficial interest in the Civil War and its causes. The reader comes away with a greater understanding of the role of the Republican Party in shaping the anti-slavery movement during the antebellum period.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Masterpiece 24. Dezember 2008
Von Steven Farron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book, along with Foner's Reconstruction: America's Unfinished Revolution, provides extremely valuable insights into a crucial turning point in American history, which still resonates today. Both are masterpieces of synthesis and interpretation. Both are scholarly and detailed, yet convey a feeling of excitement at the events described. Both enable the reader to relive the tensions, aspirations, thoughts, and struggles of the times they describe. The 1995 reissue of Free Soil begins with an important essay by Foner, which he wrote for it.
Foner was a Marxist-Leninist when he wrote both books. But he never allowed his Marxism to vitiate his historical analysis. On the contrary, he constantly emphasized that the motives that propelled the participants were ideas and ideals, not economic interest or social class (e.g., pages 4-5, 104-5, 110, 113, 168-76, 183-4, 304)

Von Jim C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Foner provides an excellent review, from a variety of perspectives, to thoroughly present the republican ideology and beliefs prior to the Civil War. Of particular interest are the various factions that made up the newly formed party, and their influence on the elections. Foner also recognizes the differences by section (North, Western, border states) on the party platforms. Very good presentation.

Probably one of the best lead-up-to prior to The Civil War books I have read. A must read in understanding the origins of the Republican Party and its early evolution.
