Description: "An extremely important book, a brilliant and original contribution to America's understanding of itself."--Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker"Anyone seriously interested in the development of American culture will be grateful for the new insights, the fresh conceptions, and the deep probings of national character that enrich this study of an American myth."--C. Vann Woodward, New York Times Book Review"Taylor's study is intellectual history, I think, of the most imaginative and convincing kind. His book seems greatly superior to almost everything else that has been done about the state of mind of the antebellum South....It is indeed something of a landmark in the writing of Southern cultural history."--Louis D. Rubin, Jr."A worthy addition to the personal library of anyone interested in southern history. Cavalier and Yankee is a brilliant and original contribution to America's understanding of itself. It reflects the mind of the South, its anxieties and consolations, its questionings and self-justifications, and its reactions to social change....Taylor's work is the best chronicle we have of the social thinking and fictional sociology which went into the framing of theantipodal myths of the Cavalier and the Yankee. In Short, Cavalier and Yankee is a must for anyone interested in antebellum American thought, culture, and letters."--Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
