The American Civil War tore apart the country that was founded on the ideals of liberty and union and embroiled it in some of the most bitter and bloody fighting that humankind has witnessed. The war changed America forever, and the shockwaves of it resounded around the world. This book seeks to understand the origins of this landmark conflict and its place in the history of modern society and warfare. Examining the major themes of the war through the world's leading American Civil War experts, the authors explore the innovation of warfare, the role of women and ethnic origins, espionage and the extraordinary leaders and personalities that shaped the future of the United States.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Written by notable scholars, the essays offer excellent overviews that range from the secession movement, to political and military leadership, to the war on the waters, in the Trans-Mississippi, and to the conflict's legacy. The writers' contributions are well-written, informative and thought-provoking... This is a book that will please both scholars and students of the Civil War. The essays serve as both an introduction and as compelling analyses of them. The book is an attractive work, printed on quality paper. At current prices for new books, this one is a bargain. The editor, Dr. Sheehan-Dean, and the contributors are to be commended for the book's breadth of topics and the quality of the essays. "Struggle for a Vast Future "is recommended as an engaging and informative work." -Jeffry D. Wert, "Civil War News" (August 2007)
"Topics covered include origins of the war, Lincoln and Davis, leadership, the men in the ranks, the Union navy, the homefront, the people's war, the war in the West, espionage, emancipation, Europe, and the war's legacy... This volume is printed on glossy paper and a great book for any general library on the Civil War." -"Blue and Gray Magazine "(Summer 2006)

Twelve historians contributed essays to this superb, concise, and readable volume... An enormous amount of history has here been condensed into a useful tool that will likely stimulate further debate and research. Students, Civil war enthusiasts, and others should find this excellent introductory text to be worth their while. "David Alperstein, Library Journal (June 2006)"

This new book offers an analysis of elements of the Civil War from a modern perspective organized into twelve chapters, each written by a different military historian... this book offers something for both newcomers with an interest in the US Civil War, as well as for the old hands... The chronology at the beginning is well done and useful. If the reader is at all interested in the US Civil War, it is worth a read. "Geoff Hall, Canadian Army Journal (Spring 2007)""
