520 2  "The familiar story of the Civil War tells of an agrarian 
       South pitted against a rapidly industrializing North. 
       However, Adam W. Dean argues that the political ideology 
       of the triumphant Republican Party was fundamentally 
       agrarian. Believing small farms owned by families for 
       generations led to a model society, Republicans saw 
       slavery as a foil to the northern agricultural ideal. In 
       their view, plantation agriculture destroyed the land's 
       productivity, required constant western expansion, and 
       produced an elite landed gentry hostile to the Union. Dean
       shows how, over time, these ideas shaped the debate over 
       slavery's expansion, spurred the creation of the 
       Department of Agriculture and the passage of the Homestead
       Act, and laid a foundation for the development of 
       conservation ideas that supported the creation of the 
       earliest national parks"--Provided by publisher.
