MEDIA REVIEWS
This fine collection of essays indicates that scholars of the Northern experience are generating similarly valuable scholarship. The dozen essays collected in An Uncommon Time are all impressive pieces of research and writing. Each is well documented, persuasively written, and intelligently argued. -- -William Lee Miller * The Historical Society of Pennsylvania *
All the essays offer exciting glimpses into the impact of war on northern society, culture, gender, and race. The book will be of interest to students of the Civil War and is recommended for use in college history courses dealing with the mid-nineteenth century. -- -Jean Richardson * New York History *
"...a book much stronger than the average collection on the Civil War. The reason for the book's superiority is that many of the essays derive from unpublished dissertations rather than from conference papers and therefore represent the fruits of substantial research and long reflection. -- -Mark E. Neely, Jr., Pennsylvania State University * American Historical Review *
