attitude of foreign powers, and of economic conditions, North and South.

(3) An effort has been made to show the influence of economic conditions on the politics of the country throughout its entire history. The economic motive is by no means the sole motive which determines the actions of men in mass, but it is unquestionably one of the most compelling motives. The slavery contest was economic in its origin and development. It became eventually a moral issue.

In arranging the topical references no attempt has been made at a full bibliography. Except in a few instances only the better known and more recent standard writers, whose works should be on the shelves of every well-selected library, are included.
