A good book will cover all the reasons, slavery included.

Are you just getting into reading about the Civil War? If so, start with Battle Cry of Freedom for a one volume. The Shelby Foote history if you feel like committing a few months to it.

Or are you past the overview stage and want to nerd out on specifics?

One of the books I’ve come across is ‘it Wasn’t about slavery: exposing the great lie of the civil war’ by samual mitcham.

Hmm is this a Daughter's of the Confederacy book from the '20's?

It was about economics and the southern economy was built on slave labor.

I read 29 years a slave; 29 years a free man. Probably not what you are looking for, but it provides a POV from a slave during the period. It is a free download from the national archives. I found it very interesting on the different layers of slavery and social hierarchy.

If you are looking for one excellent source, go with the Shelby Foote trilogy.
