The Southern Quarterly Review, though perhaps not equal to its predecessor, the Southern Review, was one of the best southern reviews before the war and one of the great American quarterlies. It was committed to the defense of slavery, opposed British aggression, and advocated states' rights and free trade. Although many of its articles were dull and very long, it wielded some influence and strikingly and faithfully reflected the thought and feeling of the South from 1842 to 1857. Articles generally dealt with the slavery debate, discussion of the tariff, and other political questions; attention was also given to education, science, and philosophy.

Search Tips

Phrase Searching

Use quotes to search an exact phrase: e.g. "occult fiction"


Use * or ? to search for alternate forms of a word. Use * to stand for several characters, and ? for a single character: e.g. optim* will find optimal, optimize or optimum; wom?n will find woman and women.

Boolean Searching

Use AND and OR between words to combine them with Boolean logic: e.g. (heart OR cardiac) AND surgery will find items about heart surgery or cardiac surgery. Boolean terms must be in uppercase.
