A Companion to the Civil War and Reconstruction

A Companion to the Civil War and Reconstruction is an extraordinary collection of 23 essays addressing the key topics and themes of the most divisive era in United States history. These original essays by top scholars in the field are organized chronologically into three parts: “Sectional Conflict and the Coming of the Civil War,” “the Civil War and American Society,” and “Reconstruction and the New Nation.” Each essay is an interpretive summary of the key literature in the field, and places the topic in historical context. Contributors include bibliographies and suggest future directions of the historiography. This volume provides students, scholars, and informed general readers of Civil War and Reconstruction history with a valuble guide to their research and teaching.
