520    The second and concluding volume of Professor Ashworth's 
       study of American antebellum politics, this book offers an
       exciting new interpretation of the origins of the Civil 
       War. The volume deals with the politics of the 1850s and 
       with the plunge into civil war. Professor Ashworth offers 
       a new way of understanding the conflict between North and 
       South and shows how northern free labor increasingly came 
       into conflict with southern slavery as a result of both 
       changes in the northern economy and the structural 
       weaknesses of slavery.
