MEDIA REVIEWS
"This anthology of sources for the Civil War era is a well contextualized collection of documents and secondary sources. Highlighted sections ask thought-provoking questions, directing students' attention and challenging them to come to grips with the complexities of this era. This book is an extraordinary contribution to teaching. It is the textbook that teachers dream of finding." Orville Vernon Burton, University of Illinois "The pulling together of all this material into one coherent volume represents a considerable editorial achievement, and one that highlights not just the most recent scholarly approaches to Civil War but also some of the reasons for the subject's perennial fascination for students, academics and the public alike." Journal of American Studies
