The Essential Calhoun: Selections from Writings, Speeches, and Letters (The Library of Conservative Thought). Calhoun's Disquisition and Discourse are profoundly reflective political thought that typify what historians characterize as the South Atlantic Republicanism.

Russell Amos Kirk (October 19, 1918 – April 29, 1994) was an American political theorist, moralist, historian, social critic, and literary critic, known for his influence on 20th-century American conservatism.

In a letter signed William Falkner and published in the Commercial Appeal .

In a letter signed William Falkner and published in the Commercial Appeal, February 15, Faulkner responded at some length. This reply, with James’s letter, was included in an essay by Neil R. McMillen and Noel Polk, Faulkner on Lynching, Faulkner Journal, Fall 1992 (. That text is printed here. It’s almost like a good clean cyclone or a dose of salts, since most books nowadays sound like they were written either by pansies or stallions. The letter is not signed.

John C. Calhoun was a major actor in the political history of nineteenth-century America. His dramatic career will always be of interest. However, Calhoun is equally important as a political thinker who continues to elicit widespread interest from the most diverse points of the ideological spectrum. The Essential Calhoun presents a full-fledged selection of speeches and writings taken from the entire forty-year span of Calhoun's public career and from many varieties of occasions, public and private. For the first time, it is possible to appreciate Calhoun fully and to consider his thought within the compass of a single volume.

Calhoun is known to posterity as the premier defender of the Old South and slavery and as the theorist of the concurrent majority. His contemporaries knew him as much else, including a political economist and foreign policy authority. As the range of writings shows, he was a valuable and often prophetic commentator.

Calhoun's thought testifies to a deep and abiding concern with moral and ethical issues that confront a government resting on the consent of the people. The fundamental question with which he wrestles in all his works is how to achieve and maintain a proper balance between power and liberty in a democratic society. By providing the most representative compendium of his thought, The Essential Calhoun invites the reader to engage in this exercise of applying the moral imagination realistically to the public business of America. Historians, American studies specialists, economists, and political scientists will find this volume indispensible.

" The Essential Calhoun " purchased for my husband , Davd A. Long, III from Amazon .com. Dr. Long will write this review.

I have often believed that John C. Calhoun was a man whose writings were so real in today's world. John Calhoun had three fears. One , was that his government under President Jackson was becoming democratic. John Calhoun believed that we were founded as a republic and that President Jackson was exceeding his authority. His second fear was that the newly recognized states would have Two Senators. With this , the South would be outnumbered in the Senate and that those in the majority would rule the minority , the South. And third, John C. Calhoun did not want the Negroes to have the vote. In South Carolina at the start of the " war of Northern Aggression " the population of the Negroes was more that that of the whites. That was the case in much of the South. There was a great financial investment and the slaves were needed in agricultural states. The North, which was industrialized did not understand this.
This collection of the writings of John C. Calhoun , edited by Clyde N. Wilson , ought to be in everyone's library.
