Too short, but an interesting surface exploration,
This review is from: The Creation of Confederate Nationalism: Ideology and Identity in the Civil War South (Walter Lynwood Fleming Lectures in Southern History) (Paperback)
I thought this a very interesting read. Faust examines how Confederate national identity was constructed, reinforced, and modified during the American Civil War. A valuable contribution, no doubt, although I wish there had been a little more on how the war itself shaped Confederate identity, as well as who did the creating and how did Confederate nationalism interact with pre-existing religious, regional, gender, economic, state or national identities. All in all, then, interesting but too short.
