This groundbreaking new reference work is the first four-volume encyclopedia to focus exclusively on the Confederacy. No comparable work is available. The set covers all aspects of the Confederacy, including its social, cultural, military, economic, and political histories. Editor Current, a noted Civil War scholar, has assembled 330 contributors who include well-known scholars. The 1,462 entries, ranging in length from 250 to 6000 words, are alphabetically arranged from Daniel Adams to Felix Zollicoffer and are fully cross-referenced. Each is signed by the author and includes a bibliography. The set also includes a directory of contributors listing every article written by each. There is also an alphabetical listing of entries, 593 illustrations, and 67 original maps. Volume 4 contains an extensive index, a synoptic outline of contents, and nine appendixes. Coverage of the subject is excellent, consisting of biographies of leading figures; descriptions of cities, states, and forts; detailed accounts of battles and campaigns; descriptions of government structure and operations; and reports on the cultural and social conditions of the period. Highly recommended for public, high school, and academic libraries.
