Reviews

Inspired by the classic Richard Hofstadter study, The Civil War Political Tradition offers cogent analysis and the clear, concise pen of a practiced master of the American historical profession. Especially appropriate for undergraduate students who might be approaching serious study of these pivotal political figures for the first time.

--Barton A. Myers, Washington and Lee University, author of Rebels Against the Confederacy: North Carolina's Unionists

These essays, written by a prolific and distinguished historian, deliver an astute analysis of ten leaders during the Civil War era. Escott's timely assessments of both famous and lesser known men and women will inspire readers to marvel at the seemingly inexhaustible potential for revisiting important topics and personalities associated with America's great conflict.

--Joan Waugh, UCLA, author of U. S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth
