“Truly impressive. Travels uncharted terrain, moving deftly through a vast scholarship in two languages. The research is sound, the prose crisp and accessible, and the subject unquestionably important.”—W. Fitzhugh Brundage, author of The Southern Past: A Clash of Race and Memory

 

“Illuminates the enduring potency of memory in shaping postwar societies for generations after the fighting ceased, reminding us that both losers and victors often had powerful motives to remember—and to forget.”—Caroline E. Janney, author of Remembering the Civil War

 

 “Traces the dynamics of memory in the aftermath of the Spanish and American civil wars and demonstrates how similar processes of closure, willful blindness, and ideological inculcation worked out in the different contexts to produce sometimes similar but often radically different outcomes.” —Cillian McGrattan, author of Memory, Politics and Identity

 

“With an engaging narrative and deep research, the book is a model of the benefits derived from a truly comparative study.”—David Goldfield, author of Still Fighting the Civil War

 

Spain and the United States both experienced extremely bloody and divisive civil wars that left social and emotional wounds, many of which still endure today. In Uncommonly Savage, award-winning historian Paul Escott considers the impact of internecine violence on memory and ideology, politics, and process of reconciliation. He also examines debates over reparation or moral recognition, the rise of truth and reconciliation commissions, and the legal, psychological, and religious aspects of modern international law regarding amnesty.

About the Author:

Paul D. Escott is the Reynolds Professor of History at Wake Forest University and author of numerous books, including Slavery Remembered, Many Excellent People, What Shall We Do With the Negro?” and The Confederacy.

Review:

“In crisp prose, Escott successfully shows how inertia ruled in both postwar societies, but also how change eroded continuity.”—Choice


“A nice discussion of the similarities of the two civil wars...[and] an excellent discussion of five great dissimilarities between the outcome.”—Journal of America’s Military Past


“Breaks new ground.... A uniquely comparative work that looks at the two civil wars in diachronic comparative perspective.”—Journal of American History

“An intellectual tour de force....[that] presents a compelling...interpretation of what happens in the South after the Civil War.”—Civil War Book Review
