Abstract:
North Carolina author Hinton Rowan Helper's one best-seller, THE IMPENDING CRISIS: HOW TO MEET IT, brought him acclaim in the North and disdain in the South. His book dealt with the effect of slavery upon the three-fourths of the Southern whites who owned no slaves, and, therefore, could not benefit from the system of slavery. By 1860, over 142,000 copies were in print, and it was second in popularity only to UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.
