Most widely held works by Kenneth M Stampp
The peculiar institution: slavery in the ante-bellum South by Kenneth M Stampp( Book )

84 editions published between 1956 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prior to the Civil War southern slavery was America's most profound and vexatious social problem. More than any other problem, slavery nagged at the public conscience; offering no easy solution, it demanded statesmanship of uncommon vision, wisdom, and boldness. This institution deserves close study if only because its impact upon the whole country was so disastrous"--Preface
The causes of the Civil War : with revisions by Kenneth M Stampp( Book )

57 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in English and held by 3,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The causes of the Civil War brings into sharp focus the major issues, real or imaginied, that divided northerners and southerners in a disastrous national crisis. Juxtaposing articles and speeches by men who lived through the struggle with the interpretations of post-Civil War historians, Kenneth M. Stampp brings face to face spokesmen for the major schools of thought. Was slavery the determinig cause? Can the blame be laid either to 'Black Republican' agitation or to the ruthless machinations of a 'Slave Power' conspiracy? Was the war an 'irrepressible conflict' between an agrarian South and an industrialized North? This volume provides no answers. Rather, the readings--including several new selections--reveal the uncertainty about the war's causes that has repeatedly driven historians back to the sources. They help us to enlarge our knowledge and deepen our understanding of the differences that set brother against brother."--Page 4 of cover

"It was a year packed with unsettling events. The Panic of 1857 closed every bank in New York City, ruined thousands of businesses, and caused widespread unemployment among industrial workers. The Mormons in Utah Territory threatened rebellion when federal troops approached with a non-Morman governor to replace Brigham Young. The Supreme Court outraged northern Republicans and abolitionists with the Dred Scott decision ("a breathtaking example of judicial activism"). And when a proslavery minority in Kansas Territory tried to foist a proslavery constitution on a large antislavery majority, President Buchanan reneged on a crucial commitment and supported the minority, a disastrous miscalculation which ultimately split the Democratic party in two."--Jacket
