This work presents not only a background into the obscure private life of the South's most prominent spokesman, but also elaborates on his changing views on the tariff, the supremacy of the national government, and the 'peculiar institution.' It shows Calhoun as not a vacillating personality, but rather one who responded to growing sectional tensions. Dr. Niven's book should be standard reading for anyone seeking to understand the tumultuous period leading to Civil War.
