REVIEWS proprietors' offspring were well represented at UNC (and William Mullins being used multiple times as an example downplays its frequency). Interestingly the class position of women--upper-class women received chivalric love and lower-class women were sexual partners-- highlights the absence of lower-class men. Furthermore, the social and potential class differences between the two debating societies are intriguing: The Dialectic Society comprised more western farmers and Whigs, whereas the Philanthropic represented eastern planters and Democrats. In Intellectual Manhood, Timothy J. Williams highlights the inner lives of UNC students and produces a welcome addition to the growing scholarship on antebellum southern manhood. The huge source base creates a lens into young men making the transition from boyhood to manhood and integrating national middle-class culture with southern traditions. Although southern historians may want more context, this intellectual history adds to our understanding of gender and reading in southern education and suggests a wider emerging middle class than is currently accepted.
