In The Confederate Constitution of 1861, Marshall DeRosa argues that the Confederate Constitution was not, as is widely believed, a document designed to perpetuate a Southern "slaveocracy," but rather an attempt by the Southern political leadership to restore the Anti-Federalist standards of limited national government. In this first systematic analysis of the Confederate Constitution, DeRosa sheds new light on the constitutional principles of the CSA within the framework of American politics and constitutionalism. He shows just how little the Confederate Constitution departed from the U.S. Constitution on which it was modeled and examines closely the innovations the delegates brought to the document.

Review:

"By continually comparing the Confederates' work to that of America's founding period, DeRosa provides solid theoretical insights that will prove both stimulating and controversial to students of American politics, political thought, and constitutional law. . . . This well- written volume makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the American constitutional tradition. It will work well in graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in American politics and political theory."--Perspectives on Political Science

"DeRosa does not focus simply upon the Civil War, but provides deep back-ground. . . . This is a work of interest to all serious students of American constitutional history and political philosophy. More impressive even than the content of DeRosa's book is the intellectual tone and approach, the spirit."--Chronicles

"DeRosa, in this brief and valuable book, helps us to understand Southern constitutionalism in matters quite distinct from the issue of slavery. Indirectly, this book serves to illuminate the intellectual origins of the Constitution of the United States. . . . DeRosa has made an important contribution to our understanding of American constitutionalism and the Civil War era. It is well worth reading."--Bimonthly Review of Law Books
