A recipient of the 1989 Pulitzer Prize, this book presents a panoramic view of the era from the closing years of the Mexican War to the period of Reconstruction.
The rocky transition of American mainstream values is shown here in the South’s proud struggle to cling to the traditions of the past and the North’s determined plunge into the capitalistic industrialism of the future. As the author indicates, the Civil War was more a “Second American Revolution,” resolving issues long unsettled and helping to redefine the American concept of freedom. “Likely to become the standard one-volume history of our Civil War” (Publishers Weekly).
