In Conservatism and Southern Intellectuals, 1789–1861, Adam L. Tate discusses the character of southern conservative inspiration among 1789 and 1861 by way of reading six conservatives whose lives and careers spanned the antebellum interval: John Randolph of Roanoke, John Taylor of Caroline, Nathaniel Beverly Tucker, William Gilmore Simms, Joseph Glover Baldwin, and Johnson Jones Hooper. Tate contends that southern conservatism derived its special features from its attractiveness of features of John Locke’s political concept because it was once articulated throughout the American Revolution.

Locke argued that the kingdom and society have been entities that may be reformed and manipulated via males. exhibiting that almost all southern conservative intellectuals accredited Locke’s premise relating to separation of kingdom and society, Tate examines either the political beliefs and social imaginative and prescient of the six conservatives surveyed. He will pay detailed cognizance to how those conservatives handled states’ rights, republicanism, slavery, sectionalism, and faith, in addition to western enlargement and migration.

Tate keeps that whereas southern conservatives cast a typical political culture in keeping with outdated Republican interpretations of the structure, they didn't create a unified culture of social idea. even supposing so much of them wanted a cohesive southern highbrow move, in addition to a homogenous southern tradition, their disagreements over the great society avoided them from making a universal southern social imaginative and prescient to accompany their states’ rights political tradition.
