9780748619351: The Civil War in American Culture (BAAS Paperbacks)

The Civil War is an event of great cultural significance, impacting upon American literature, film, music, electronic media, the marketplace and public performance. This book takes an innovative approach to this great event in American history, exploring its cultural origins and enduring cultural legacy. It focuses upon the place of the Civil War across the broad sweep of American cultural forms and practices and reveals important links between historical events and contemporary culture.The first chapter introduces a discussion of ante-bellum culture and the part cultural forces played in the sectional crisis that exploded into full-blown war in 1861. Subsequent chapters focus on particular themes, appropriations, interpretations and manifestations of the War as they have appeared in American culture.

About the Author:


Will Kaufman is Professor of American Literature and Culture at the University of Central Lancashire

Review:

Thought-provoking... Required reading for anyone interested in topics of race and/or culture in the U.S.

(Gerri Gribi AfroAmerican Heritage.com)

An interesting, well-nuanced study... Recommended.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

An excellent overview... due to its readability and user-friendly nature.

(Jim Flook H-CivWar)

An engaging... enjoyable.... compelling book, bursting with insights. The war still matters so much, to so many people, and Kaufman has helped illuminate how and why. As he sagely observes, Appomattox was not the last word on the great conflict.

(Joan E. Cashin American Studies)
