Wolf by the Ears: The Missouri Crisis, 18191821. By John R. Van Atta. (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2015. Pp. 199. Paper, $19.95.) Reviewed by Ken S. Mueller In this brief and skillfully crafted study of the Missouri Controversy, John R. Van Atta sets out to "unpack the crisis from that old box" that has heretofore defined it (x). He argues that, in the past, scholars have paid more attention to the internal political dynamics of the crisis-- congressional debates, party development, and so forth--than to the external social, cultural, and economic forces that both influenced and were affected by the nation's first major sectional dispute. Wolf by the Ears largely fulfills these goals and, in less than 200 pages, touches on nearly every other aspect
