This volume goes well beyond mere documentary reproduction. William M. Mathew offers an extended biographical supplement devoted to the prominent South Carolinians encountered by Ruffin, giving special attention to their farming practices and political philosophies. In his introduction, Mathew recounts the preoccupations underlying Ruffin's survey and the reasons why it fell far short of its objectives. The South Carolina agricultural and political leadership operated with only the crudest of economic ideas: its rhetorical vocabulary of "diversification" and "overproduction" was never refined, and there was little effort to address the apparent contradiction of applying crop-boosting methods to an already inflated cotton sector. Finally, Ruffin found that many planters simply did not wish to bother with the laborious methods that he recommended
