5.0 out of 5 stars
This guy was my lecturer at uni, 18 Mar 2008
This book is an insightful analysis into the causes and events of the American civil war. Interpretative rather than comprehensive, this is ideal for anyone seeking to understand the issues at the heart of the conflict.
Written by my former lecturer, this is more than an abstract academic text. It is highly readable and accessible for student, historian and enthusiast alike.
