The Debate on the American Civil War Era Paperback
by Hugh Tulloch
Part of the Issues in Historiography series
This study is the first to critically survey the changing and highly controversial historical literature surrounding the American Civil War era, from contemporary interpretations up to the present.
The book analyses both historians attitudes and assumptions and suggests that each writer's perspective was partly determined by the dictates of time and place.
The author engages with all aspects of the Civil War era; social, cultural and economic as well as its political dimensions.
Aimed at sixth form colleges and university students.
