This first scholarly biography of Lowndes establishes his place in history, even though he was overshadowed by contemporaries John C. Calhoun and Henry Clay, and provides valuable insights into our understanding of the development and decline of republicanism. Lowndes served in Congress during a time when the rising spirit of democracy challenged the elitist character of republicanism and advanced majority rule, thus raising questions concerning the nature of the Union.
