“(Johnson) is a master of narrative history.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

From the pages of Paul Johnson’s authoritative A History of the American People comes an intimate and compelling account of the lives of ordinary Americans during the tumultuous Civil War. Johnson conveying the personal impact of the monumental conflict upon Americans great and small who endured its greatest hardships. The Washington Post Book World says, “it is Johnson’s gift that he can make his subjects human and fallible enough that we would, indeed, recognize them instantly, while also illuminating what made them heroes.” Harper Perennial has distilled Johnson’s larger work to focus on the American experience during the Civil War, providing an indispensable resource for anyone striving to understand the day-to-day consequences of the war between the states.

From the Back Cover:

In these masterful essays drawn from his New York Times bestsellers A History of the American People and Heroes, one of the world's most renowned and respected historians explores what is arguably the most important chapter in the annals of America: the Civil War. Enlivened with the author's trademark scholarship, verve, and intelligence, this vivid, concise history revisits the conflict that tore a nation asunder and provides portraits of the people who played essential roles in the bloody drama. Johnson's Civil War America examines the factors that led to the devastating rift in the years before the fighting—and recounts the troubled healing a wounded nation underwent in the years after the final shot was fired.

About the Author:

Paul Johnson is a historian whose work ranges over the millennia and the whole gamut of human activities. He regularly writes book reviews for several UK magazines and newspapers, such as the Literary Review and The Spectator, and he lectures around the world. He lives in London, England.
