Joan Cashin's collection of the writings of white Southern women is an excellent addition to the growing body of published primary sources and monograph studies on the culture of the antebellum South. The collection is divided into six thematic sections dealing with various aspects of white women's lives and the issues that concerned them (family, friendship, work, race, public life, and secession). The items in every section are arranged chronologically and each of the 128 items is annotated and preceded by a brief biographical note.

Our Common Affairs has particular significance for scholars of southern history interested in women and political culture. Cashin has original and powerful readings on slavery, secession, and women's responses to these issues long before and on the eve of the Civil War. But nonspecialists will appreciate the way in which Cashin's book unfolds and offers us a wide cast of characters through diary entries, excerpts from legal records, portions of letters, and other primary text selections.

We know little about the lives and thoughts of white women in the antebellum South, and for many years students of the period have waited for a broadly based sampling of their writings. In Our Common Affairs, supplying this need, Joan E. Cashin has assembled 125 documents that explore the lives of these women in their own words. Cashin has selected excerpts from letters, diaries, wills, recipe books, and advice literaturemost never before publishedand drawn from sources in every Southern state. Her subjects include the wives of planters, merchants, professionals, artisans, and yeoman farmers.

Organized into six topical chaptersfamily life, friendship, work, race relations, and the secession crisisthese writings illuminate the experience of white Southern women as never before. In an introductory essay that critically reviews the historiography of the last thirty years, Cashin argues that white women in the slave South created their own distinctive culture, a "culture of resignation" that, unlike that of their Northern counterparts, accepted inequity and refrained from political activity.

Our Common Affairs examines the strong ties women developed among female kinfolk and friends; their troubled relations with slaves, especially female slaves; their frequent distaste for politics; and their mixed but largely fearful reaction to secession. The documents emphasize the pressing daily responsibilities these women faced and reveal their authors as flawed, complex, and wholly different from the stereotypes of Southern women that persist in the popular imagination.
