  • Rebels in the Rockiesby Walter Earl Pittman

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 39.95

    The Civil War in 1861 found Southerners a minority throughout the West. Early efforts to create military forces were quickly suppressed by the Yankees. Unable to control their local territories, many returned to the South to fight while others remained where they were, forming a potentially disloyal population. Underground movements developed and existed... more...

  • Vicksburg and Chattanoogaby Jack H. Lepa

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 39.95

    During the American Civil War few events produced more important strategic results for the Union cause than the campaigns resulting in the taking of Vicksburg and Chattanooga. Along with the Federal triumph at Gettysburg, these gains were decisive in bringing about final Union victory. Ulysses S. Grant was the man in charge of the Federal forces that... more...

  • Weird John Brownby Ted A. Smith

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 22.95

    Conventional wisdom holds that attempts to combine religion and politics will produce unlimited violence. Concepts such as jihad, crusade, and sacrifice need to be rooted out, the story goes, for the sake of more bounded and secular understandings of violence. Ted Smith upends this dominant view, drawing on Walter Benjamin, Giorgio Agamben, and others... more...

  • Slavery, War, and a New Birth of Freedomby Jeffrey H. Hacker

  • Lincoln's Political Generalsby Benton Rain Patterson

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Lincoln's most controversial generals--his so-called "political generals"--were appointed, promoted or kept in service for political purposes without regard for their competence. "It seems but little better than murder," the Army's general in chief, Henry Halleck, protested, "to give important commands to such men."... more...

  • The War of 1812, Conflict and Deceptionby Ronald J. Drez

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Perhaps no conflict in American history is more important yet more overlooked and misunderstood than the War of 1812. Begun by President James Madison after decades of humiliating British trade interference and impressment of American sailors, the war in many ways was the second battle for United States independence. At the climax of the war --... more...

  • Corps Commanders in Blueby Ethan S. Rafuse; Kenneth Noe; Mark A. Snell; Steven Woodworth; Christopher S. Stowe; Brooks D. Simpson; John J. Hennessy; Thomas G. Clemens

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    The outcomes of campaigns in the Civil War often depended on top generals having the right corps commanders in the right place at the right time. Mutual trust and respect between generals and their corps commanders, though vital to military success, was all too rare: Corps commanders were often forced to exercise considerable discretion in the execution... more...

  • Lincoln and the Militaryby John F. Marszalek

    Southern Illinois University Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    When Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the United States in 1860, he came into office with practically no experience in military strategy and tactics. Consequently, at the start of the Civil War, he depended on leading military men to teach him how to manage warfare. As the war continued and Lincoln matured as a military leader, however,... more...

  • Douglass in His Own Timeby John Ernest

    University of Iowa Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    One of the most incredible stories in American history is that of Frederick Douglass, the man who escaped from slavery and rose to become one of the most celebrated and eloquent orators, writers, and public figures in the world. He first committed his story to writing in his 1845 autobiography Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American... more...
