MEDIA REVIEWS

A House Divided offers students of the Civil War era a sweeping interpretation of the defining crisis of America's past that is readable and engaging from the first page to the last.

Don H. Doyle, University of South Carolina, author of The Cause of All Nations: An International History of the American Civil War (2014).

Jonathan Wells' A House Divided expertly introduces readers to one of the most complex eras in American history. Wells's engaging, comprehensive, and balanced text, peopled with a broad range of actors, guides us through the changes and the continuities of the Civil War. He explains the causes, nature, and outcomes of the conflict with remarkable cogency, guiding readers through historians' debates, and rooting his story in the words and actions of the era's most important voices.

Aaron Sheehan-Dean, Fred C. Frey Professor of Southern Studies, Louisiana State University

Jonathan Wells' textbook synthesis of the Civil War era succeeds in the difficult task of incorporating new research with traditional themes. As a consequence, students get a readable, state-of-the-art survey of the Civil War era in its full complexity.

Frank Towers, University of Calgary, author of Confederate Cities (2015)
