By the 1970s, however, economic historians were viewing the pre-Civil War years less as a period of industrialization as of increasing commercialization. As more studies provided evidence that Americans were moving away from a subsistenceoriented way of life to one centered upon production for and dependence on a market economy, social historians argued that this ``market revolution'' entailed a change in mentaliteÂ from a pre-modern, community-based ethic to the acceptance of individualistic, competitive, laissez-faire capitalism.
The same verdict can be passed upon those accounts which have emphasized the role of another set of factors that were, in themselves, unrelated to the sectional controversy: the ethnocultural issues. Some historians have noted the effect of immigration, and of nativist hostility to immigrants, and, to a lesser extent, of the temperance movement, in bringing about the collapse of the second party system between Democrats and Whigs in the mid-1850s. Clearly this collapse played a major role in transforming the political agenda and thus facilitating the triumph of sectionalism and, equally clearly, the wave of immigration (or the move to restrict or outlaw drinking) had little to do with any sectional hostility between North and South.
It has also been argued that the Republican party itself, in its earliest years, was heavily influenced by nativism and temperance, and that its supporters stressed these issues even more than anti-slavery. What are we to make of these claims? Unquestionably, the traditional focus on high politics served to obscure the role of nativism and temperance in the upheaval of the mid-1850s. It is safe to assume that there will be no reversion to the traditional view.
