About this Item

"The Civil War ravaged the American landscape for four years and instead of conserving the old America it steadily and profoundly rehaped the political, economic, and social contours of the nation. By the time it ended, the original American republic was gone. The postwar republic would be carved out of a world that the war made." (From the introduction by Gary Gallagher. This is as distinguished a one-volume history of the Civil War as can be found. Historian James McPherson writes in a foreward, describing the book as a "rich feast, .(providing) an understanding of how and why the war came out as it did." It is also a lucid and compelling read, profusely illustrated, authored by four distinguished Civil War historians termed "the top rank," by Professor McPherson. Curiously, this important and valuable book has somehow slipped between the cracks and seems generally unknown. It is a gem, published in 2014, a new edition of the original, first published in the UK in 2003. This is an unread copy, in AS NEW condition, number line starting with "1," both DJ and text unchipped, unclipped and unmarked. 334 pages, lavishly illustrated. International orders will require extra postage. Several copies available. Bookseller Inventory # 151104
