131 DOWNEY, TOM, Planting A Capitalist South: Masters, Merchants, And Manufacturers In The Southern Interior, 1790-1860.
Louisiana State University Press, Baton Rouge and London: 2009. First Paperback Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In Planting a Capitalist South, Tom Downey effectively challenges the idea that commercial and industrial interests did little to alter the planter-dominated political economy of the Old South. By analyzing the interplay of planters, merchants, and manufacturers, Downey characterizes the South as a sphere of contending types of capitalists: agrarians with land and slaves versus commercial and industrial owners of banks, railroads, stores, and factories. His book focuses on the central Savannah River Valley of western South Carolina. An influential political and economic region and the home of some of the South's leading states' rights and proslavery ideologues, it also spawned a number of inland commercial towns, one of the nation's first railroads, and a robust wage-labor community. As such, western South Carolina provides a unique opportunity for looking at contrasting economic forces solely within the boundaries of the South—slavery vs. free labor, industrial vs. agricultural, urban vs. rural. A revisionary study, Planting a Capitalist South offers clear evidence of a burgeoning transition to capitalist society in the Old South. "This is a pathbreaking book, well grounded in the appropriate documentary record. Downey. . . offers an exciting and fresh perspective on an old problem of vital importance, the relationship between businessmen and planters in the Old South."—American Historical Review "A well-written and well-thought piece of historiography showing in microcosm how a new synthesis of antebellum southern history should be conceived."—Enterprise and Society "Well written and researched, Downey's excellent work will add greater nuance to our picture of the social and economic life of the Old South, particularly our picture of the emerging southern middle class."—Georgia Historical Quarterly A native of Ohio and fourteen-year resident of South Carolina, Tom Downey now lives in New Jersey, where he is assistant editor of the Papers of Thomas Jefferson at Princeton University.
