The Calhoun Review, Secession and Devolution in Contemporary Geopolitical Theory

Issue 1, Volume I, 2016

Abstract: In this inaugural issue of The Calhoun Review we examine the topic of secession, particularly as it applies to contemporary political discussions in the US and internationally. In the standard narrative of US history, particularly as told over the last 30-40 years, Calhoun was the godfather of secession which lead to a war and was proven a flawed and illegitimate concept.

The thematic topic this quarter squares nicely with our recently published Annotated Secessionist Papers and adds the perspective of an international contemporary view to the subject.
