Influenced by the civil rights movement, protests against the Vietnam War, and the women's rights movement ± to all of which the major political parties appeared unresponsive ± professional historians turned away from the once-firm belief that the study of past politics formed the core of a historian's responsibility.

Clearly this collapse played a major role in transforming the political agenda and thus facilitating the triumph of sectionalism and, equally clearly, the wave of immigration (or the move to restrict or outlaw drinking) had little to do with any sectional hostility between North and South. Although these ethnocultural historians do not, in general, seek to explain the Civil War, they are implicitly proposing another accidental factor as crucial to the sectionalizing process (Holt, 1978; Silbey, 1985).
