About this title

Synopsis:

Examines the extraordinary events that led up to the Civil War, from Abraham Lincoln's 1860 election victory, through governmental gridlock, Southern threats to secede, and the machinations of an ambitious William Steward, to the fall of Fort Sumter. 17,500 first printing. History Bk Club."

Review:

Maury Klein's knack for words shows up on the first page of this book: "How could the oldest, deadliest, most divisive conflict of a proud nation come down, after decades of bitter strife, to a dispute over an insignificant fort squatting on a hunk of rock in the harbor of the South's oldest and most defiant city?" Klein, a history professor at the University of Rhode Island, goes on to answer this question in lively prose. The Fort Sumter saga, of course, has been told well by others, but Klein makes the tale worth reading again.
